Abstract

Many physicians are familiar with experiments in medical education which are designed, in part at least, to break the barrier that has traditionally existed between colleges and schools of medicine. The Hopkins experiment which went into effect this fall is but one example of several that either are planned or have been implemented. These programs allow selected students at the end of the second or third college year to begin medical school studies while at the same time continuing liberal arts college courses. Such experiments are being watched with interest, for they embrace the advantages not only of relating the medical school faculty and students more closely to the parent university but also of shortening by one year the formal educational span in medicine. This effort to present medical study as a continuum of liberal arts study rather than to view each as separate segments, and on occasion as necessary
