In preparation for these studies it may be mentioned that high school physics and chemistry are necessary in order to enroll in the beginning university courses in the same subjects. Whereas these requirements as specified will be accepted for admission in the medical school, it should be pointed out that it is highly desirable that the student should not content himself with the acquisition of a Junior Certificate, but should take at least three years of college work, if possible. By this means, not only is more time offered for work in subjects of general culture outside the scientific requirements, but by a combined seven year course (three years as an undergraduate in the university and four years in the medical school) the two degrees of B.S. and M.D. may be obtained.

Students taking the combined course should elect work of some of the following departments: English, Philosophy, Economics, History, Political Science, Education, and Anthropology.

ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING

year class.

Applicants for admission to advanced standing may become candidates for the degree of M.D. under the following conditions: (1) They must furnish evidence that they were eligible for admission to the first

(2) They must show that courses equivalent in kind and amount to those given in this school in the year or years preceding that to which admission is desired, have been satisfactorily completed. (3) At the discretion of the Executive Committee of the Medical Faculty they must be prepared to pass satisfactory examinations in those subjects for which they ask credit.

INSTRUCTION FOR GRADUATES IN MEDICINE Graduates in medicine may arrange with the heads of the different departments for special work. Graduate students may enter at any time during the year and must register at the Dean's office before be: ginning work.

Lectures and clinics of interest to practitioners are held on Saturday mornings; for attendance upon these registration is not necessary.

CLASS STANDING AND EXAMINATION For the determination of class standing and for advancement and graduation the results and markings of all studies and examinations conform to the procedures followed in the Academic Department of the University. The numerals 1, 2, 3 indicate that the student has passed in the first, second and third grade; 4 indicates condition; 5 failure.

By the term “Examination” is understood the judgment of the instructor upon the work of a student. This judgment may be reached in three ways: by personal contact with the students and observation of their routine work, by oral examinations, and by written examinations.

* During or the close of each ac nic year the following examinations are held:

First Year.—Histology, Systematic Human Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry.

Second Year.-Morbid Anatomy and Histopathology, Bacteriology, Infection and Immunity, Topographical Anatomy, Pharmacology, Materia Medica, Clinical Pathology, Medical and Surgical Propedeutics.

Third Year.-Hygiene, Dietetics, Therapeutics, Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Neurology, Dermatology and Syphilis, Ophthalmology, Obstetrics, Gynecology, Otology, Rhinology, Laryngology, Orthopedic Surgery, Urology, and Roentgenology.

Fourth Year.-Electives.

Students who fail to pass the examinations in three or more subjects must repeat the year, the branches in which they were conditioned constituting their curriculum. Those students who fail in two courses must pass one of them before the opening of the academic year following that in which they were incurred, so that not more than one condition can be carried into the second, third, or fourth year; and this must be passed in order to render the student eligible for the examinations held at the end of that session. A condition in any subject completed in a given year must be removed within thirty days following the opening of the succeeding academic session. Under all circumstances prerequisites must be respected. Inasmuch as there will be no opportunity during the clinical years to make up practical courses, no student will be permitted to carry into the third year a condition in a course which includes laboratory work. Fourth-year students who fail in one or two branches may reappear for examination after three months. In the event of their passing the examinations at that time they will be recommended to the Board of Regents for the degree; should they then fail in one branch even, they must repeat their fourth year, the branches in which they were conditioned constituting their curriculum. To the heads of the departments is reserved the right to determine whether a student who has failed in a course shall be entitled to appear for re-examination at the beginning of the next academic year, or be required to repeat the course. The Faculty reserves the right to sever the connection of any student with the Medical School at any time for what it deems either mental or moral unfitness for a career in medicine.

* During the Session 1914–15, on account of changes in the curriculum, certain variations from the above arrangement of examinations will be unavoidable.

REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION

The candidate for the degree of Doctor of Medicine must have attained the age of twenty-one years and must be of good moral character. He must have studied Medicine four full years, and must have attended four annual courses as a matriculated student, the last of which has been spent in this School. He must have completed the required work, have fulfilled satisfactorily all special requirements, and have received a satisfactory grade throughout the entire medical course. He must have discharged all indebtedness to the School.

INTERNE YEAR

Students entering the School in 1914 and thereafter will be required to supplement the academic course in Medicine with a year as interne in an approved hospital or as a special worker in a department of the Medical School.
