Approved Medical Schools
There were 89 medical schools in active operation in the academic year 1966-1967. Of these, 87 were fully accredited, 84 offered the full four-year program, and three were accredited as two-year schools of the basic medical sciences. The remaining two schools, New Mexico and Rutgers, are still classed as schools in development (Table 1). New Mexico plans to graduate its first class in June 1968, and at Rutgers the first class completed its first year of medical studies this past June. At two additional schools, Brown University School of Medical Science and Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, students were participating in integrated premedical-medical programs offering courses normally given in medical school. However, in September of this year, students entered a stage four years from the granting of the MD degree; Brown and Michigan State will therefore be considered as having medical students in attendance for the 1967-1968 academic year.
