ABSTRACT

In order to obtain the facts regarding the opportunities for students of limited means to obtain a medical education, correspondence has been conducted with the presidents of fifty prominent universities. The inquiry included the possibilities of obtaining the essential premedical college work as well as the work in the medical school.

PREMEDICAL COLLEGE WORK  The replies in regard to securing the premedical college training showed that the opportunities were even more numerous than was anticipated. From the universities which had kept fair records in regard to students' self help, we learn that from 50 to 65 per cent. of the student body are working for at least a part of their expenses, and that between 15 and 20 per cent. are making their entire way through college. Some of these were granted scholarships which covered all or part of their tuition fees, but in no instance covered other essential expenses.
