Twenty-Seventh Session, Fall and Winter of 1869-70,
Commencing October 5, 1869, and to continue until the last of
It is with feelings of great satisfaction that the Trustees of the CINCINNATI COLLEGE OF MEDICINE AND SURGERY make the Announcement of the Twenty-Seventh Course of Lectures in that Institution. The College has come to the close of another year, with a rapidly-increasing number of pupils and graduates; its means of illustration and demonstration will be largely increased by new additions during the present season; its great practical chairs are now all filled by men of large experience, and who possess, in an eminent degree, the happy faculty of teaching others; anatomical material may be had here in great abundance ; the immense clinical advantages of the largest general hospital in our country, are open to all medical students on the most liberal terms; in a word, everything conspires to indicate that Cincinnati, on account of its large population, easy access and central position, is destined to become a great centre of medical science and teaching, and that the Cincinnati College-whose Faculty are so fully imbued with the noble aims of their high professionwill soon take a leading position among the medical schools of our country.
It will be seen that one of the peculiarities of this school is the LOWNESS OF ITS FEES. While we advocate a reputable preliminary education, the complete curriculum of studies, the full term of pupilage, two full courses of lectures, and are anxious to further any effort to give depth and extension to medical education; on the other hand, we are disposed to open wide the portals of science; to withdraw, as far as practicable, all pecuniary obstacles ;

and to encourage all young men, however humble, to enter the arena of professional life, who feel the promptings of a noble ambition stirring within them. In following this course, we think we are advancing in accordance with the generous spirit of our age and country, which is everywhere opening free libraries and lecture rooms, and building school houses for the million. The lives of such men as Drake and Eberle, of Hunter and Velpean, are positive proof that poverty is often associated with the highest ability. Their brilliant career has given a forward impulse to science, and served to dignify and ennoble the profession with which they were connected. A me lical college established upon such a liberal basis in a large city, where clinical advantages can be secured, will do much to arrest the tendency to open medical schools in small cities and towns, where this essential part of medical education must of necessity be neglected. Our school, we are persuaded, is rapidly introducing into the profession a new, energetic, and life-giving element--one which will do quite as much to advance the cause of science, and quite as much to maintain the dignity of the profession, as will be found to come out of those institutions where the size of the head is to be measured by the length of the purse; but which atford a happy faculty of accommodation, by dividing their pupils into the fullpay class, the note makers, and the beneficiaries.
THE CINOINNATI HOSPITAL This Institution, which so elegantly adorns the northern part of our city, and which has been erected by the expenditure of a million of dollars, is now open for all classes of patients—an honor to our city, and acknowledged to lie at once the most elegant, extensive, and best appointed general Hospital in our country Here are found fever wards, Ophthalmie warils, obstetrical wards, venereal wards, and surgical warris; in fact, here may be seen almost every disease that tlesh is heir to, its nature studied, and the results of treatment witnessel. Among the numerous surgical operations performed there during the last season, we may mention amputations of the arm, leg, circumcision, excision of tunors, hemeroids, ligature of main arteries, lithotomy, vesicovaginal fistula, hare-lip), hydrocele, lacerateri perineun, paracen tesis abdominis and thoracis, removal of bullets and dead bone, a great variety of operations on the eye, etc, etc. In a word, the
student may here enjoy, as at Vienna, the advantage of seeing all manner of disease in a general hospital, and does not, as in New York and Philadelphia, have to spend a large portion of his time in running over the city from one hospital to another.
At the close of the winter term six house physicians are appointed for this Institution, and all graduates have an opportunity of competing for these positions.
