Abstract

How could the academic work of medicine be done in three years? By having to face the necessity of doing it in three years. If there were some czar who could demand that we cover adequately the college course in medicine in three years—and such a czar may develop in necessity—I doubt not it would be done; and I am not sure it would not be done in a sounder way than we are doing it now. It would require intelligence in method, thought in separating essentials from unessentials, and thoroughness. It would require that sound methods of teaching be pursued and sound practices of study be required of students, so that it would not be necessary to cover the same didactic ground more than once, as is largely done now in the senior year. The details of medicine are so numerous that no one man can know all of
