During the past two years, changes made in medical schools in the United States have been chiefly in the erection of new buildings, improvement of teaching staffs, the rearrangement of subjects in the curriculum, and closer affiliations with hospitals, with increased opportunities for students personally to study diseases at the bedside in dispensaries and hospitals. The number of medical students increased in both years, but the number of graduates increased in 1924 and decreased slightly in 1926. This bulletin describes the changes in medical education during the biennium at the medical school and in the hospital, compares the current state with that of 1906, accounts medical progress in the past fifty years, and looks forward to changes in medical practice. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures, and 5 footnotes.) [Advance Sheets from the Biennial Survey of Education in the United States, 1924-1926. Best copy available has been provided.]
