Excerpt from Announcements: The Medical Schools, for the Sessions of 1935-36
The Medical Schools of the University include (a) The School of Medicine of the Division of the Biological Sciences, and (b) Rush Medical College.
The School of Medicine of the Division of the Biological Sciences was organized in 1924. Its purpose is to serve the medical sciences by research and teaching. It is a part of the Division of the Biological Sciences and its work is done on the University Quad rangles in close contact with that of other scientific departments - Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, etc. Departments devoted to the pre - clinical sciences were provided for when the University was founded, and established shortly thereafter. Their primary pur poses are the development of the sciences and the training of scientists. Since 1899 they have included among the courses offered all those required in the first two years of work leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine as well as those leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. In 1924 and 1925 Clinics and departments devoted to the clinical medical sciences were added with the same general character and purpose as the departments previously established. Since then the School of Medicine of the Division of Biological Sciences with its hospitals and Clinics has offered opportunity for training and study in clinical medicine. In the medical course leading to the degree of Doctor of Medicine emphasis is placed on practical clin ical training. Clinical teaching is through supervised doing. In addition, opportunity is afforded in each department for elective courses and for advanced intensive work and research leading to advanced degrees.
