Abstract

Stimulated by the analysis of the cost of undergraduate medical education in state-supported schools by President Wells of Indiana,1 and his challenge that endowed medical schools also should publish their costs and not hide their budgets from the public, we have attempted this task for Duke University School of Medicine and Duke Hospital.

Furthermore, all the schools, both state and privately endowed, are in financial straits.2 A third reason for compiling these figures is that the medical schools have a responsibility to
