Abstract

The quarter century ending with 1925 has seen a successful campaign for the improvement of medical education in this country. The extent of the improvement is such as has not been equaled by any other department of education. Prior to 1900, little was known regarding our medical schools. Only those closely identified with medical education knew of the reports published by the Illinois State Board of Health during the secretaryship of Dr. John H. Rauch.1 The high ideals upheld during his official career and his annual reports on medical education had much to do with increasing the instruction in medical schools from a two to a three year course, and later from a three to a four year course. His work also resulted in the exposure of a score or more of diploma mills located in various parts of the country, as a result of which they were forced
