UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA
ORGANIZATION AND GOVERNMENT. The University of California is an integral part of the public educational system of the state. As such it completes the work begun in the public schools. Through aid from the state and the United States, and by private gifts, it furnishes facilities for instruction in literature, science, and engineering, and in the professions of art, law, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. In the Colleges of Letters, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Commerce, Agriculture, Mechanics, Mining, Civil Engineering, and Chemistry these privileges are offered without charge for tuition to all residents of California who are qualified for admission, Non-residents of California are charged a tuition fee of ten dollars each half-year. In the Professional Colleges, except that of Law, moderate tuition fees are charged. The instruction in all the colleges is open to all qualified persons, without distinction of sex. The Constitution of the state provides for the perpetuation of the University, with all its departments.
ORGANIZATION. The organization of the University comprises the following legally constituted colleges and departments:
I. In Berkeley. 1. College of Letters.
7. College of Mining. 2. College of Social Sciences.
8. College of Civil Engineering. 3. College of Natural Sciences. 9. College of Chemistry. 4. College of Commerce.
10. College of Medicine, first and 5. College of Agriculture.
second years. 6. College of Mechanics.
II. At Mount Hamilton. Lick Astronomical Department (Lick Observatory).
III. In San Francisco. 1. San Francisco Institute of Art. 2. Hastings College of the Law.
3. San Francisco Department of the College of Medicine, third and fourth
years. 4. ('ollege of Dentistry. 5. California College of Pharmacy.
IV. In Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Department of the College of Medicine, third and fourth years.
The College of Medicine of the State University therefore carries on its work in three cities, the student doing his first and second year work at Berkeley and choosing the San Francisco or Los Angeles departments in which to complete the work of the third and fourth years.
The University of California proper is located at Berkeley, a city of about 43,000 inhabitants, on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, direetly opposite the Golden Gate. It is thirty-five minutes' ride by train and ferry from San Francisco, and a thirty minutes' ride by elecric car from the business center of Oakland. The site of the University comprises about two hundred and seventy acres, rising at first in a gentle and then in a bolder slope from a height of about two hundred feet above the sea level to over nine hundred feet. It thus covers a range of more than seven hundred feet in altitude, while back of it the chain of hills continues to rise a thousand feet higher. It has a superb outlook over the Bay and City of San Francisco, over the neighboring plains and mountains, the ocean, and the Golden Gate.
For its exceptional all-year-round climate, Los Angeles is well known. In many portions of the East, southern California is thought of only as a winter resort. It is, however, the testimony of those who have had opportunities to observe, that the summer climate of Los Angeles is better than that of the East, even more than its world-famed winter climate exeels the changeable and rigorous weather conditions of the Atlantic Coast and Middle West.
Few cities in the United States have been making such phenomenal strides in population and wealth as has Los Angeles. In 1890, the census showed a population of 50,000 persons. By 1900, the number had increased to 102,000. The United States census of 1910 gave the city of Los Angeles a population of 319,198 and the county of Los Angeles a total of 504,131. This remarkable development still continues.
In addition there is a transient or tourist population of many thousands.
Living in Los Angeles is as cheap as in any other American city of like size, and the only special extra outlay for a student from the East is the railroad fare. Round-trip excursion tickets can be purchased that are good for nine months. The cost, therefore, of pursuing a medical education at Los Angeles, a trip to California included, is no greater than in eastern cities.
LOS ANGELES DEPARTMENT, COLLEGE OF MEDICINE.
This institution came under the control of the University of California in February, 1909. Prior to that time its faculty for twenty-four years had been carrying on its work in affiliation with the University of Southern California. Believing that because of the close relation of the physician's work to public health, the training of men and women for the profession of medicine could be carried on to the best advantage of both the individual and the state under the guidance of the State University, the Medical Faculty at Los Angeles offered its property to the University of California.
This offer was accepted by the Board of Regents, and, beginning with the session of 1909–1910, the University of California has conducted departments of its College of Medicine in both San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Freshmen students who matriculated in 1910 and thereafter were required to show credentials sufficient for entrance into the University of California plus two years of properly selected college work.
See require ments for admission, p. 14.
Didactic, Laboratory, and Clinical Facilities for Teaching.— The lecture, laboratory, dispensary and library buildings of the College of Medicine are commodious, well arranged and equipped. The instruction is in charge of experienced teachers whose aim it is to carry on, in the most thorough and successful manner, instruction in a curriculum that is in full accord with the standard of the Association of American Medical Colleges.
The respective value of didactic teaching, laboratory work, and clinical demonstration is fully recognized and an effort has been made to give each a place and time in proportion to its importance and value.
