The traditionally quiet Medical School
is currently embroiled in a controversy
which ultimately involves the issue of how
the University should relate with the com-
munity outside its glass and steel walls.
The controversy concerns an experi-
mental family care clinic which the school
is planning as part of its program in com-
munity medicine.
Although the clinic as well as most other
facets of the broad-based program are
still in the embryonic stages of planning,
students, faculty members, and administra-
tors have already begun to take sides on
the question of how the clinic should serve
the surrounding population.
One group of students in particular, the
Student Health Organization, (SHO), has
emerged as a sort of pressure group to
make sure the clinic does not become a

facility which caters to the suburban
middle class population while ignoring the
"The poor and the rural people are sim-
ply not receiving medical care," says Lou
Giancolo, a student in the public health
school. "Doctors tend to gravitate into the
wealthy areas where the facilities are best.
Hospitals and clinics are often inaccessible
to large portions of the population be-
cause of geographical, sociological, and
economic factors."
Giancolo and a group of medical stu-
dents from the SHO, fearing the new fam-
ily clinic would be housed in vacant nurses'
quarters on the grounds of the Veterans
Administration Hospital on North Campus,
have petitioned Medical School Dean Wil-
liam Hubbard to build the clinic near a
poor neighborhood, such as the Willow
Village area in Ypsilanti.

"Hubbard denied the legitimacy of our
arguments," Giancolo said. "He said
teaching and research were the most im-
portant considerations, and service was
tertiary. He said the new clinic should be
no further from the Medical School than
the VA hospital or the Parkside Medical
facility, just over the Main Street bridge."
However, since that meeting, SHO mem-
bers have been included on the planning
committees for the program. Futhermore.
administrators have indicated the nurses'
quarters at VA hospital, which have been
rented by the University, will probably not
be suitable for the new clinic.
"That space wouldn't by any flight of
fancy be suitable for this program," Hub-
bard said yesterday.
Prof. Donald Smith, director of the en-,
tire community medicine program, says.
"A site for the clinic has not been chosen.

We have been told that we can use the
space at the VA if we want it, but we'd
rather delay that decision until we think
it through."
Smith envisions what he calls the "com-
prehensive family-centered health care
facility" as "a kind of model to try a
variety of different approaches to com-
munity medical care. In the area of finan-
cing, for instance, Smith anticipates that
patients will be able to pay bills for medical
care on a prepaid insurance pattern as
well as a straight fee-for-service basis.
The clinic would provide preventive,
therapeutic, and rehabilitation services for
family groups selected on a cross-sectional
basis of the population.
"It has been definitely decided," Smith
states, "that the clinic will serve a cross-
sectional sample of the general population,

and that no group will be under or over
While some, like Smith, want a cross
section of the population to be served,
others think the clinic should be oriented
toward care for the poor.
SHO's Robert Salinger, a freshman med-
ical student, was'recently included on the
program's planning committee..
"They won't define their terms of a cross
section," Salinger says. "It could be a
geographical cross-section or an economic
one. We want a cross-section that is heavi-
ly biased toward the poorer segments of
the population."
Hubbard points out that one area, of
the program oriented toward poor people
is the medical school's connection with the
Wayne County General Hospital at Eloise,
University medical students have worked
there for seven years.

Financing will also be an acute prob-
lem if a new building has to be built for
the clinic. In addition to the University's
annual request, for funds from the State
Legislature, the Medical School has applied
for a grant from the federal department
of Health, Education, and Welfare to
finance the project.
Since hardly anything about the project
has been definitely decided upon, it is
entirely possible that the controversy over
the clinic's patient population will be
settled as students, faculty. and adminis-
trators work together in the planning
The question the planning committees
will have to answer is whether the Medical
School's responsibility toward the poor who
are "living sick" justifies concentrating on
them more than any other segment of the
