The Los Angeles Medical Department of the University of California is an institution giving instruction to graduates of medicine only. The undergraduate medical work of the University is carried on at Berkeley and at San Francisco.
The Los Angeles Medical Department traces its origin to the institution of a college of medicine by the University of Southern California in 1886. From that date until February of 1909, it remained a medical department of the University of Southern California, but in the latter year its property was transferred to the University of California.
In order not to duplicate the expense of undergraduate teaching, it has been decided to confine the work of the Los Angeles Medical Department to instruction of graduates of medicine only. In this work of graduate instruction, it is the aim of the institution to offer work for all graduates who desire to review past studies, or who wish to pursue courses which would keep them in touch with the recent advances in medicine.
The courses offered come under three major heads:
1. THE PURELY CLINICAL COURSES.
In these courses, the practitioner attends the Dispensary and Hospital clinics, and, without any obligations on the part of the instructors to give special didactic instruction, follows the clinical work in the Dispensary and Hospital, and obtains therefrom such knowledge and experience as is possible.
2. THE REVIEW COURSES FOR GENERAL PRACTITIONERS.
In this group of courses, the practitioner will be given a review in all of the major clinical branches, the work being both clinical and didactic; the didactic work, however, being handled largely by the specialists from the standpoint of the general practitioner.
3. THE COURSES IN THE SPECIALTIES.
The work under this heading will be both clinical and didactic. The didactic work will go into considerable detail, but the courses which will be offered will be of different types according to the capacity of the student to profit therefrom.
The clinical work will give the student opportunity to work with patients in the Dispensary, and at the bedside, so that he may acquire proper methods of technique, and that experience that will enable him in his particular line of work, to have a greater knowledge and capacity than his fellow in general practice.
The purely clinical courses in the Dispensary can be entered at any time.
