Medical Department.




The organization of the Medical Department of the University of Vermont, comprises a full board of Medical Professors, whose great aim will be to give a thorough course of scientific and practical instruction in the various branches of medical science.

During the Lecture Term, Surgical Operations and Medical Advice are gratuitous to patients presenting themselves before the Medical Class, and a large number of persons avail themselves of this charity. This Clinique does not depend upon Burlington alone (the most populous town in Vermont) but receives cases from various sections of this State, the Northern part of New York, and Canada.

The Anatomical Museum is constantly receiving additions, and is abundantly supplied with preparations, plates, and all other materials necessary for giving a thorough course of instruction, and ample arrangements have been made for a supply of anatomical material for dissection, which will be furnished to students at cost. Every facility will be offered the student of AnatClasses omy for acquiring a thorough practical knowledge of the science. will receive the personal attention of the Professor of Anatomy assisted by a competent Demonstrator, without extra fee. The dissecting rooms are lighted from above and furnished with every convenience.

The Cabinet of Materia Medica contains specimens of all the most important articles of medicine, which will be exhibited to the class, and their therapeutical application, chemical incompatibilities, and various adulterations, fully discussed by the Professor.

The Professor of Obstetrics will be able to illustrate the various subjects connected with his department, with plates, models, preparations, and upon the recent subject, and will spare no pains to make his course pre-eminently practical.

The Chemical Laboratory is supplied with Apparatus and Chemicals, and every means of affording the students who desire it, an opportunity of pursuing a course of practical Chemistry.

The Professor of Theory and Practice of Medicine will devote himself, first to the development of the general principles of Medicine, and afterwards to the consideration of each subject in detail, by which the student is enabled to reason upon the practical application of the principles of medicine.

The Professor of Surgery is supplied with preparations, plates, casts, and specimens of morbid anatomy, sufficient to enable him to do ample justice to the various subjects embraced in his department. The lectures in this department will be thoroughly practical. All important operations will be performed before the class, and the application of splints, use of instruments, and Surgical apparatus and dressings, will receive particular attention.

Since the last Course of Lectures, Dr. John V. Lansing has been appointed Professor of Physiology and Pathology. The creation of a separate chair for lectures upon Physiology and Pathology will give opportunity for a fuller and more extended course upon these branches.

The aim in this department will be complete and scientific instruction, made as interesting, as useful, and as demonstrative, by means of experiments and microscopical illustrations, as the present state of medical science demands and modern methods of research will allow.


At the commencement of the Session, every Student is required to enter his name and place of residence, and the name and place of residence of his Preceptor, in the Secretary's book, and take the Matriculation Ticket and Dean's Certificate entitling him to the tickets of each Professor.
