In addition to the above general requirements, the student must give evidence of sufficient training in physics, chemistry, biology, English literature and composition to enable him to pursue with profit the curriculum of the school and must possess a reading knowledge of French or German. The following courses now offered represent the minimum of satisfactory preparation in the subjects named (numbers refer to the Announcement of Courses for 1920–21): English 1A-1B (6 units); Chemistry 14-1B, 8, 9; Physics 2A–2B and 3A-3B; Zoology 1A-1B. Ten units credit in French or German will be accepted as fulfilling the requirement of a reading knowledge in these subjects.

By a resolution of the Academic Senate the faculty of the Medical School is authorized to refuse admission to applicants with a low record in the required academic subjects.

The State law governing the practice of medicine in California prescribes that every person before practicing medicine or surgery must produce satisfactory testimonials of good moral character and a diploma issued by some legally chartered medical school, the requirements of which shall have been at the time of granting such diploma in no particular less than those prescribed by the laws of the State, and which shall have received the approval of the Board of Medical Examiners that year. The requirements for matriculation in the University of California Medical School as above stated cover also the requirements of the Association of American Medical Colleges, provided that the high school programme includes the subjects listed in the following paragraphs.


The following tabulated curriculum represents the most satisfactory arrangement of work to meet the medical prerequisite courses, as prescribed for those entering the Medical School in or after August 1923. The student should however, make certain that his course is so arranged as to satisfy the junior certificate and other requirements of the College of Letters and Science so that his entrance to the Medical School and the attainment of his A.B. and M.D. may not be delayed. Certain variations in the chronological arrangement may be necessitated if the high school course included the minimum of foreign language work. Such variation may be made with the approval of the Faculty Adviser.

This curriculum assumes the completion of the following subjects in the high school: English, 3 years; history, one year; mathematics, two years, (algebra and plane geometry); chemistry, one year; physics, one year; foreign language (French or German), 2 years. The junior certificate requirements will be more easily met if foreign language study has been pursued four years in the high school.

MEDICAL CURRICULUM-FIVE YEARS In the fifth or intern year the student is required to act as intern in an approved hospital or as special worker in a department of the Medical School. By arrangement with the department concerned this may be done at any time after the completion of the first year and a half of medical work.

For further information see the annual announcement of the Medical School, to be obtained from the Secretary of the Medical School, Parnassus and Third avenues, San Francisco.

CURRICULA IN PUBLIC HEALTH There are three curricula in public health, designated by the letters A, B, and C. Curriculum A is intended for general students in public health; curriculum B is intended for students holding the degree of Bachelor of Science from the College of Civil Engineering; curriculum C is intended for students of medicine and may be substituted for the second half of the fourth year, and fifth, or intern, year in the Medical School without affecting candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Medicine.

While enrolled in the Medical School students in the Public Health course are subject to the usual fee of $75 per half-year.

For completion of any of these curricula the degree of Graduate in Public Health (Gr.P.H.) is conferred.

With the permission of the Committee on Public Health Study-Lists courses may be substituted for those shown in the following curricula to the extent of not more than six units in any half-year.

CURRICULUM A A four-year course, three years in the College of Letters and Science and one year in the Medical School.

Requirements for Admission to the Course.—The junior certificate in the College of Letters and Seience including a reading knowledge of French or German, Physics 2A-2B, Chemistry 14-1B, Bacteriology 1, Zoology 1A-1B.

The student is advised to avoid strict specialization in science and to devote his elective units as far as practicable to subjects of general culture. The following courses, however, should be completed: Chemistry 8 and 9, Economics 1A-1B.

In order to satisfy the reuqirements for the degree of Bachelor of Arts based on the first two years of this curriculum, the student must complete at least thirty-six units selected from the following list of courses. The thirty-six units must be distributed among the subjects as indicated.

In order to satisfy the requirements for the degree of Master of Arts in Public Health, or in order to proceed to the final year of this curriculum

which is given in the Medical School, the student must have completed twelve units chosen from the following list of courses, in addition to the thirty-six units completed for the bachelor's degree.

The curriculum for students who hold an academic bachelor's degree based in part on the curriculum of an acceptable training school for nurses will be determined for each candidate by the Committee on Public Health Study-Lists.
