JOSEPH CLARK STEPHENSON, S.B., Assistant in Zoology.
FELLOWS APPOINTED FOR THE YEAR 1909-10
(In the Medical Departments)
INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT For several years the University of Chicago has offered courses suitable for students who were preparing to undertake medical work, and also in soveral of the subjects usually included in the first two years of a medical college curriculum. In 1899 provision was made for courses in Practical Anatomy, and under the arrangement of affiliation with Rush Medical College, the University offered, during the session of 1899–1900, courses corresponding to all of the work of the freshman year of that institution. Since June 19, 1901, the University offers instruction in all of the subjects of the first two years of the medical curriculum; namely, in Anatomy, both gross and microscopic, Neurology, Embryology, Physiology, Physiological Chemistry, Inorganic, Organic, and Analytical Chemistry, Toxicology, Pathology, Bacteriology, Pharmacology, and Psychology. The student who has completed this work will be prepared to enter directly upon the clinical work, that is to say, the work of the third and fourth years of the medical school. All of the work of the first two years of Rush Medical College is offered at the University only. Students taking this work at the University will matriculate and register as students of Rush Medical College and likewise as students of the University. There will be no extra fee for such registration at the College.
Students are admitted to the medical course who comply with the requirements for admission to the Junior Colleges of the University of Chicago, corresponding to the requirements for admission to the freshman year of an institution of equal rank, and have had, in addition, two years (eighteen majors) of college work. This preparation should include a thorough course in Mathematics, in German or French, and in Physics, Chemistry, and Biol. ogy. Every student, however, should complete a four years' college course
before entering the Medical School, if his age and other circumstances make it possible for him to do so.
Students entering the medical course, who have not had the full amount of Physics, Chemistry, or Biology required for admission, and students seeking admission to advanced standing from other medical schools, are strongly advised to enter at the beginning of the Summer Quarter.
Attention is called to the fact that courses are offered in the Departments of Arts, Literature, and Science of the University, in all the branches of a liberal education, and a medical student may take work in these branches by attendance during additional quarters or to a limited extent by extra work during his attendance upon the medical course. Students desiring to take work of this character should consult with the Dean of Medical Students, Students may apply their credits in medical courses as Senior College electives for Bachelor's degree.
The teaching of the fundamental medical branches in an institution of general learning is believed to constitute a distinct step in advance in medical education. The student pursuing these studies in the atmosphere of an institution devoted to purely scientific work, under the instruction of men whose time is wholly devoted to teaching and investigation along their respective lines, cannot but gain a broader and more thorough conception of these sciences. Such a training will not only afford a better preparation for the clinical courses of the medical college, and for the practice of medicine and surgery, but will also enable the student to follow more easily in paths along which medical advances promise to be made, and to apply these new discoveries in his daily work.
LABORATORIES, EQUIPMENT, AND LIBRARIES The medical instruction is given in the Anatomical, Physiological, and Zoological Laboratories, and in Kent Chemical Laboratory. For a description of these laboratories and their equipment, and for information concerning the General Library and departmental libraries, see General Index of this Register.
ADMISSION TO THE MEDICAL COURSE
Students are admitted to the Medical Courses either as (1) Undergraduate Students (candidates for a bachelor's degree, S.B., A.B., or Ph.B.). (2) Graduates of the University of Chicago, or of other universities or colleges of good standing, are admitted to the Medical Course as Medical Students; they are allowed all the privileges of the members of the Graduate Schools of the University. (3) In addition to students in regular standing, provision is made for the admission to the University of undergraduate students not seeking degrees. Such students are known as Un. classified Students. They may register for medical subjects, but they are not candidates for the M.D. degree until they have fulfilled the requirements for admission.
1. Admission.—a) Each student must present to the Faculty certificates of good moral character, signed by at least two physicians of good standing in the state in which the applicant last resided. Blank certificates for this
purpose may be had on application to the Dean. (b) He must be able to comply with the requirements for admission to the medical courses of the University of Chicago (see below). In brief, they consist of a four-year highschool course, plus two years of college work, which must have included College Physics, General Chemistry, and Biology, and a reading knowledge of German or French. . (c) He will matriculate and register as a student of Rush Medical College as well as of the University at the beginning of his
Such matriculation and registration is accomplished at the University without extra fee.
2. Medical Courses as Undergraduate Work in the course for a Bachelor's degree.—a) The first two years' work in Medicine may be taken as the third and fourth years of the Bachelor of Science course, or, in very large part, of the course for the degrees of A.B. or Ph.B.
Students who wish to enter college and prepare to take the medical work as part of their Baccalaureate course may enter at the beginning of the Junior College Course (first college year or at any further stage of advancement). (6) Each student must comply with 1(a). (c) In order to comply with the rules of the Medical Examining Boards of several states, a student will matriculate with the Dean of Rush Medical College (at the University) at the beginning of his work in Medicine. He will consult with the Dean of Medical Students each quarter in regard to his work, and take a card of advice to the Dean of the Senior Colleges, with whom the student will continue to register until he receives a bachelor's degree. Credit will not be given toward the M.D. degree unless the student complies with this regulation.
3. Admission as a Graduate Student.-(a) Admission to the Graduate Schools of the University is granted (1) to those who have been graduated from the Colleges of the University of Chicago with the degree A.B., Ph.B. or S.B.; (2) to those holding Baccalaureate degrees from other institutions of good standing. (6) Application for admission in the case of students not grad. uates of the University should be accompanied by testimonials as to character and scholarship. Such testimonials should take the form of diplomas, written or printed theses, or satisfactory evidence in some other form of the student's fitness for admission. (c) A graduate student taking the Medical Course must comply with 1(a) and 1(c). He will consult each quarter with the Dean of Medical Students, and will take a card of advice from him to the Dean of the Graduate School, with whom the student will register.

entrance examinations of the departments in which they wish to work; (4) must satisfy the Dean and the particular instructors under whom they desire to study that they are prepared to carry the courses elected.
Unclassified students conform to all regulations of the University, and having been admitted, their continuance depends on the maintenance of a satisfactory standing.
NOTE.-Students entering the University for the first time should make it a point to complete all arrangements for entrance, either by correspondence or in person, at least two days before the opening of the quarter.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO THE MEDICAL COURSES These comprise (A) the successful completion of a four-year high-school or academy course, qualifying the student to enter the Junior College (Freshman class) of the University of Chicago, and (B) 18 majors (=6 quarters) of the usual college course, or a full equivalent therefor.
HIGH-SCHOOL WORK REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION TO THE JUNIOR COLLEGE (FRESHMAN
CLASS), UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO (a) The high-school work imperatively demanded of every student comprises 3 units? of English (Rhetoric, Composition, and Literature); 3 units of language other than English; 212 units of Mathematics (Algebra, through Quadratics and Plane Geometry); and 6% units in other high-school branches. (6) Students intending to study medicine are strongly advised to take in the high school 2 units of Latin (Elementary Grammar and Caesar), 3 units of German or French, 1 unit each of Chemistry and Physics—with Laboratory work, and %2 unit of Trigonometry. If these branches have not been taken in the high school, they must be taken as part of the college work required for admission (see (B) above.). A diploma is not accepted as sufficient evidence of such preparation, but specific statement is required as to the amount and character of the work in each branch of study. Blanks are furnished by the University for the presentation of such credits, and will be mailed on application to the Dean of Medical Students.
Such credits are accepted without examination from affiliated or cooperating schools (see p. 109), also from the accredited schools of certain state universities (see list below). Students from schools not recognized by the University must submit to examination in the branches required.
1. Times and places of examinations.— Examinations for admission are held three times a year at the University. (For dates see the Calendar, p. iii.)
2. Fee for examination for admission. -A fee of $5 is charged for exami. nation for admission. This is paid when the first examination is taken. The same fee is paid by students entering upon certificate from co-operating schools.
3. Students from the University High School, and the Affiliated and Co-operating Schools are admitted to the University upon presentation of a
1 A complete and more detailed statement of the requirements and the ground covered by each subject will be sent to any principal, teacher, or student on application to the Dean of the Medical Students.
2 A unit corresponds to a daily recitation throughout the school year of thirty-six weeks.
subject certificate covering each of the subjects stated above as required for admission.
4. Credits from other than affiliated or co-operating schools.- Credits for work done at high schools or academies not in the list given above, will be accepted provisionally, provided the principal of the school will certify that the applicant has done good work in the school, and that he is willing the student's credits should be accepted by the University of Chicago as a test of the character of the work done in that school. By provisional acceptance of credit it is meant that such acceptance will be withdrawn if the student's work in the University during his first two quarters of residence fails to show that his preparation was adequate in the branches for which he sought credit.
COLLEGE WORK REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION Eighteen majors (two years) of college work must have been taken, and this work must have included the following branches:
1. Chemistry-(a) 3 majors of Inorganic Chemistry (or 2 majors, if 1 unit of high-school Chemistry with Laboratory work has been taken). (6) 1 major of Organic Chemistry. (c) 1 major of Qualitative Analysis. This work in Chemistry corresponds to the courses Chemistry 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6-see Department of Chemistry, Part II of this Register. The student is advised to take Quantitative Analysis, but this is not required.
2. Physics—1 majors of Physics (or 2 majors, if 1 unit of high-school Physics has been taken). This work in Physics corresponds to the courses Physics 1, 2, 3, and 4see Department of Physics, Part II.
3. 1 major General Biology equivalent to Zoology 1 or 2-see Department of Zoology, Part 11.
4. A reading knowledge of German or of French (ordinarily 2 units of high-school or 3 majors of college work).

Attention is called to the fact that the extra credits which will be required in addition to high-school work may be secured in the Colleges of Arts, Liter ure, and Science of the University of Chicago by attendance during extra quarters before entering the medical course, or, in small part, by taking extra work in these Colleges during the student's attendance upon the medical course. A student may qualify for admission to the medical course by prolonging his attendance or taking extra work in the University. Credit will be accepted for such work in any other college or university of equal standing.
ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING
Students are admitted to advanced standing in the Medical Course of the University as follows:
Students from other medical schools whose standards are fully equivalent to those of this institution may receive credit for time spent-estimated in months—and for work successfully completed in such institutions, provided it is equivalent to corresponding work in the medical course in the University. Such a student should give an explicit statement in regard to his preliminary
