A course of seventy lectures in Pathology, forty demonstrations in Applied Pathology, ten lectures in Chemical Pathology, and practical work in gross and microscopic pathology.

5'ъг.лвus. The lectures embrace General and Special Pathology. The demon- strations in Applied Pathology and the practical courses are designed to bring the teaching of Pathology as far as possible into direct relation with the clinical study of disease. Lectures in Chemical Pathology are given by the staff of the.

Department of Biochemistry during the Sеcопд. Term of Division II (i.e. March- May).

РаАcтicАL WORK. (i) Instruction in the conduct of autopsies and demon strations in morbid anatomy, at the University and the Royal Melbourne, Alfred, St.. Vincent's and Prince Henry's Hospitals. Students are required to assist personally at autopsies and to act as clerks. A minimum of forty-five attendances must be obtained.

(ii) Laboratory work in pathological histology during three terms.

There is a laboratory fee for use and provision of material ; a deposit of f5.

is to be paid and materials will


provided on production of receipt. On return of material a refund will be made, less a service charge of f2 plus value of breakages.

Students must supply their own microscopes.

(iii) Tutorial classes in morbid anatomy and applied pathology in which the class is divided into small groups.

(iv) Students are required to study, with the aid of clinical histories and autopsy notes, the morbid anatomy and histology of the organs and tissues of the cases coming under observation during the course, and to submit for criticism descriptions and discussions of these cases.

MICROBIOLOGY AND EPIDEMIOLOGY A course of approximately sixty lectures with practical work.

THEORETICAL SYг.іaвus. The course will embrace lectures on the morphology and physiology of bacteria, viruses and pathogenic fungi, the properties which enable bacteria to cause disease, the response of the host to the parasite including immun- ological and allergic states, characteristics of micro-organisms of medical impor- tance, principles of epidemiology and chemotherapy, application of techniques in sterilization and in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of microbial diseases.

PRACTICAL SYU.лвus. The practical work will include exercises directly related to the theoretical content.

A course of twelve lecture-demonstrations at the beginning of the Third Year, conducted in each of the recognized teaching hospitals by lecturers approved by the Faculty of Medicine.

Sm.лвus. Every course is designed to introduce the student to basic principles of Psychology and Psychopathology and the importance of psychological factors in illness, and to instruct the student in the technique of interviewing, history taking, and the relationship of doctor and patient. Stress will be laid on the importance of

psychological and social factors in general medicine.
