Excerpt: ... THE SUMMER COURSE The summer course in physiology will be given daily during the five weeks from June 29 to August 1, 1903, inclusive. This course will be found to be valuable to instructors of schools and colleges who seek experience in the teaching of physiology by laboratory methods. Students who wish to prepare themselves for the courses in the Medical School, or who may desire to recover ground lost by illness or other misfortune, will also find an opportunity here. The instruction will consist of fundamental experiments performed by the students themselves, and the study of accessory data. An informal lecture or conference will be given daily. The fee for these thirty days of laboratory instruction, including the necessary material, will be forty dollars.
