We are confronted, at the outset, with the fact that in very few instances is it possible for a university to offer what may be called an ideal course of instruction in dermatology. Such a course, in my opinion, demands imperatively the control by the Department of a certain number of hospital beds, which may be used as a means of keeping cases suitable for teaching until the day for demonstration, and for giving small groups of students a far better opportunity for examination of cases, and observation of their treatment, than can be obtained in the out-patient department.
