There are certain persons who are fond of insisting that the fundamental medical sciences should be taught in what they are pleased to call a “practical” manner. They resent the growing tendency to insist that the preliminary education in science subjects should be given in colleges and universities rather than in the medical schools. “Medical chemistry and medical physics,” they say, “should be taught by medical men in medical schools, so that the students may learn what is of practical use to physicians without wasting their time on matters of mere theory.”
