2. Instruction in Homeopathy is in charge of two professors, a Professor of Homeopathic Materia Medica and a Professor of Applied Homeopathic Therapeutics.

3. All students in the first two years take all work in common except in Materia Medica. In this subject 32 hours of so-called “Regular" Materia Medica and 32 hours of Homeopathic Materia Medica is given in the second half of the second year. Students may elect either one of these courses and hours of instruction are so arranged as to permit of election of both courses by all students who may so desire.

4. In the third and fourth years all students take the same courses except in Materia Medica and Therapeutics and Clinical Medicine. Elective courses in these subjects is offered so that students may choose whether they take work under instructors of the so-called “Regular'' or of the Homeopathic" school.


Through the generosity of Mrs. Frances B. Sanborn, one of the three scholarships known as the Sheffield Sanborn Scholarships has been assigned to the Medical School. This scholarship yields $250 per annum at present and is open only to students who have not yet received the degree in medicine and who otherwise would not have the opportunity to acquire a university training.

The Willard Thompson Scholarship is open to students of the Medical School who are residents of Utah. This scholarship yields $600 per annum,

Recently the alumni of the Medical School have established a scholarship known as the “William Watt Kerr Scholarship in Medicine." It yields $400 per annum and is awarded to a worthy student of the Medical School.

Applications for these scholarships should be filed with the Recorder of the Faculties by March 1 of each year. A blank form of application may be obtained from the Recorder of the Faculties at Berkeley.

FELLOWSHIPS Three fellowships are offered by the George Williams Hooper Foundation for the year 1918–19. Each student fellow receives a grant of $600 and is charged no medical school nor laboratory fees. Applicants must have had at least one and one-half years of medical school training in the University of California Medical School or its equivalent. A year is devoted to this work, and consists mainly of research in experimental medicine. This work will be in part independent but in part coöperative research with other members of the laboratory staff. The fellow is expected to do some advanced work in gross pathology, and get a broad training in pathological anatomy. The work of this fellowship should give the research fellow exceptional training in the fundamental medical sciences and a broader outlook in general medicine. The value of this fundamental training to the medical student can not be overestimated, and a true understanding of research medicine can be obtained in no other way.

The work done under this fellowship, if satisfactory, may count as the fifth year in medicine. If the necessary preliminary requirements have been fulfilled, it may also count toward the attainment of other graduate degrees (Master's degree or Doctor of Philosophy).


Internships in the University Hospital are open to fifteen graduates of the University of California Medical School or of some other approved medical school. Fourteen interns are assigned to the various clinical departments and one as pathological intern. Interns serve for one year, without salary. The appointments are made upon the recommendation of the Advisory Board of the Medical School, which takes into account both the character of the work of the candidate throughout his entire career in the Medical School and also his general fitness.

The Medical School supplies sixteen internships in the San Francisco Hospital open to members of the graduating class. The Medical School also supplies internships at the IIahnemann Hospital.

The Regents of the University have provided positions for residents in medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics, and assistant residents in surgery, gynecology and obstetrics and pediatrics at the University Hospital. These appointments, not necessarily limited to one year, are open to graduates in medicine who have had previous hospital experience and possess suitable qualifications for the work. The residents receive $600 and the assistant residents $300 a year and accommodations in the hospital.

The positions of House Physician, House Surgeon, and House Gynecol. ogist on the University of California Medical School service at the San Francisco Hospital have been established.


Through the generosity of an alumnus of the Medical School a small sum of money has been set aside to be loaned to needy students of the upper classes. Applications for loans should be addressed to the Secretary of the Medical School.




The instruction in the Medical School begins coincidently with that of other departments of the University. During the session 1918–19, because of the war, the term opened the first of October and closes the fourth of June, instead of the usual plan of the University.

While all the students liable to military service were members of the S. A. T. C. the academic year was divided into trimesters. With the disbandment of the S. A. T. C. the University has returned to the semester plan, the second term beginning January 13th and extending to June 4, 1919.

The chief aim of the school is to develop medical practitioners and to offer facilities which will enable qualified students to prepare themselves for special medical work. The faculty is in sympathy with the principle which allows the student great freedom in choosing the direction his studies shall take. A system of instruction has been inaugurated which will permit wide choice in selecting the work of the last half of the fourth year.

The course of instruction is in harmony with the principles adopted by the Association of American Medical Colleges. Following the terminology employed by that association, the amount of work required in various subjects is indicated by the number of hours devoted to them. But in the case of the fundamental sciences-anatomy, physiology, biological chemistry, pharmacology, pathology, and bacteriology—the courses are also assigned a “unit" value such as other departments of this University employ. This expression is used since, under certain conditions, the subjects mentioned may be elected by non-medical students to fulfill the requirements for degrees other than the medical. In so far as the courses required for medical students are concerned, these units have no particular significance. The elective courses in these departments, however, may be taken by medical students in fulfilling requirements for a Master's degree, and the required courses may be counted in the combined course as fulfilling units for the A.B. degree, as well as part of the work for the

M.D. degree.

In general, the University has adopted, as a standard, a unit of sixteen hours of didactic teaching, or forty-eight hours of laboratory work. The
