The Medical World for April says: "With all the everlasting hue and cry about medical ethics, one can not but wonder that there is so much loyalty existing, if he but know even a little of the actual condition of affairs. The medical student enters the medical school, ‘fresh from college'; or fresh from the farm; or fresh from his preceptor's office. He has never heard a word of medical ethics, and when he first hears the term, if he has the timber of a good doctor in him, he looks wise and remains silent while inwardly cursing his abject ignorance.
