Abstract

San Francisco, Dec. 1, 1906.

To the Editor:  —Convinced that the incident referred to by Dr. Ethan H. Smith of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, San Francisco, is of more than local interest, I beg to submit the following evidence:Section 5 of the law regulating the practice of medicine in California contains the following: "In order to procure such certificate, he must produce satisfactory testimonials of good moral character and a diploma issued by some legally chartered medical school, the requirements of which medical school shall have been at the time of granting such diploma, in no particular less than those prescribed by the Association of American Medical Colleges for that year." Since 1896 the College of Physicians and Surgeons, San Francisco, has stated in its annual announcements that in granting advanced standing the requirements of the Association of American Colleges would be "strictly adhered" to.
