It will be remembered, in regard to the Michigan medical law, that when the Nottingham act was first introduced it contained a provision requiring graduates of medical schools of foreign countries which do not recognize the Michigan diploma to undergo a course in Michigan schools, the law corresponding to that of certain provinces of the Dominion of Canada, and was intended to apply to those coming from that country. This was objected to, and considerably criticised by newspapers and others at the time. As the law now reads, an applicant for examination must have a diploma from a legally established and reputable college of medicine in the United States or some foreign nation, "provided such foreign nation accord a like privilege to the graduates of approved medical colleges of this state." In effect, this leaves the matter very much as in the original bill. It will be hard to see
