- ARTS AND SCIENCES 57 , 1 year Physics with laboratory ; 2 years Chemistry including ` (a) General Chemistry Z (b) Qualitative Analaysis . (c) Quantitative Analysis _ (d) Organic Chemistry E ~ Electives sufficient for Junior classification [ Q The student may pursue a combination Arts-Medicine course, spending 1 three years at the University before transferring to medical school and 1. V obtaining the A.B. or B.S. degree after the first years work in medical g i school. (See page 56 of this bulletin.) The student who completes a four years course of study and thereby 5 obtains his degree will have time to meet the requirements for entrance r. t d to all medical schools. Opportunity is thus afforded for a broader back- - _ ground in the natural sciences, social studies, and humanities, which will be of advantage both in medical school and in later life. The student may S elect any field of concentration and may major in any department of the . field which he desires. rs n The number of students applying annually for admission to medical colleges exceeds the number which can be admitted. Boards of admission ` consequently fill their quotas from those who are best prepared, or who if have had three or four years of college work, or even a college degree. Fur- i ` thermore, these boards seldom select a student who does not have a satis- L factory standing, regardless of the number of years spent in college. 3 i Recormnendation for Prospective Medical Students 11 [ 1. Consider the study of medicine only if you have a serious desire to l' _ do so, and if you are capable of demonstrating this by successfully and Ig : satisfactorily completing your college courses. An applicant for entrance *11 ' to medical school should have at least a 1.5 standing. ` 2. Rather early in your academic career, try to determine to what ; medical school or schools you will make application. Then, inform yourself as to the specific requirements and desires of these schools and try to con- . form to them. In order to do this it is advisable for you to write the Dean ly of the medical school or meet with him in an interview. of ._ 3. The College of Arts and Sciences has a faculty committee, known i- _ 35 the "Premedical Advisory and Recommendation C0mmittee," the pur- re { Dose of which is to advise prospective medical students and ultimately to * recommend them for entrance to medical schools. VVhen you enroll, you 1 will be assigned by the Dean to a member of this committee who will be . Your adviser and with whom you should consult early and frequently in your- premedical work. This conunittee collectively passes upon you as an _. applicant to medical school. Only the recommendation of this committee 5 carries the endorsement of the University.
