This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1881 edition. Excerpt: Junior students will have an opportunity under competent instruction to study Comparative Anatomy and Physiology practically by dissecting various animals. While thus becoming familiar with structures and tissues, they will also acquire dexterity in the use of instruments preparatory to work upon the human cadaver. The apparatus to illustrate the lectures in Chemistry and Chemical Physics is very full and complete. The Chemical Laboratory provides thorough instruction and suitable appliances for the practical study of all branches of Medical Chemistry. In each of the two Laboratory courses required for graduation, namely, Qualitative Chemistry (devoted to the study of chemical changes and incompatibilities), and Analysis of Urine (applied to clinical uses and physiological study), students are taken in sections of limited number for daily drill in the class-room, to direct the daily practice in the Laboratory. Before beginning Laboratory work the student takes a preparatory course, with daily recitation, in chemical notation, and, at the close of the work in each course, is held to an examination. The times at which students may enter upon these courses will be announced at the opening of the college year. By an act of the Legislature, a liberal appropriation for the equipment and conducting of a Physiological Laboratory has been made. Microscopes, a stereopticon, sphygmographs, and numerous other instruments for extended practical work have been procured, and are in daily use. By the cooperation of the Professors of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pathology, the students have opportunities in this Laboratory for practical instruction, under efficient instructors, in Experimental Physiology and in Histology, both Physiological and more
