U's five year medical program
to start during fall term, 1972 crisis broadens

Continued from page 1)
work toward changing this
concept of medical school. Ac-
cording to Assistant Dean of
the Medical School Harvey
Sparks, the new program will
"provide people with a new
type of education, combining
the best of two types of cur-
ricula: both medical and liber-
al arts. This will enable our
students to combine medical ed-
ucation with the broader issues
of society and humanity."
To achieve the hoped for
integration of course material,
without sacrificing any of the
information generally consider-
ed vital to the education of
young doctors, the new program
will include a curriculum dras-
tically different from present
"The present program is
somewhat repetitive, with stu-

dents taking the same course
in both grad and undergrad
(work)," said Sparks. "instead
of eliminating some courses, we
have instead made them more
compact and less redundant."
An additional advantage of
the new system, according to
zoology Prof. Lewis Kleinsmith,
is that "it allows students to
become acquainted with medi-
cal curricula from their fresh-
man year. Under the present
program, students mu s t wait
until graduate school before
they can get a real taste of the
field of medicine."
The chance for graduation in
five years, according to the
coordinators of the program, is
merely a favorable by-product
of its "extreme flexibillity."
Students will be able to pro-
ceed at their own pace, enabl-
ing them to assimilate knowl-
edge at their own particular
level. This will mean, for some
students, although by no
means all of them, that grad-
uation is possible within 5
years of entrance.
Plans for the program in-
clude the selection of about 50
high school students for the
first class to start in Fall,
1972. In the meantime, how-
ever, courses must be drafted
and approved, a n d methods

for accurately testing the stu-
dents devised.
Administrators h o p e that
their new program will be suc-
cessful in producing w e 11-
rounded individuals as well as
good doctors. "Society needs
physicians who are able to at-
tack problems using the tech-
niques of the humanists as
well as those of the scientists,"
said George M u t h, associate
dean for academic affairs of

AnAssociated Pr ests survey
has found many big industrial
employers reluctant to discuss
their hiring policies. None quer-
ied were optimistic about sum-
mer opportunities.
A spokesman for Celanese
Corp., with 33,000 regular em-
ployes, said recruiting for both
full time professional jobs from
colleges and plant level vaca-
tion replacements is about 50
per cent of normal.
The Singer Co., with 133,000
regular employes, expected only
"minimal" summer hiring, a
spokesman said. IBM, with about
221,000 regular employes, re-
ported a limited number of sum-
mer openings, but fewer than
last year.
E.I. du Pont de Nemours Co.,
with 118,000 employees, said it
was "doing very little student
hiring this year."
And RCA, with 128,000 regular
employees, said total employ-
ment is down and summer hiring
will be down, too.
In public agencies the prob-
lem is the same. The Youth Op-
portunity Center in Columbia,
S.C., has placed only 100 of 2,000
students applying for summer
The Idaho Department of Em-
ployment received more than 500
applications for 40 openings in
the National Forest Service youth
conservation camp program.
The Hawaii State Employment
Service estimates it will be able
to place only 1,400 of an ex-

In New York City, the State
Employment Division has re-
ceived only 1,400 job openings so
far, while last year the figure
was 5,500. Just to help students
get jobs, this division of the state
labor department is planning to
hire 90 of them for the summer.
The same type of picture was
painted by public employment of-
ficials in 20 other states: Ala-
bama, California, Florida, Illinois,
Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi,
Missouri, Montana, North Caro-
lina, Nevada, Ohio, Rhode Is-
land, South Carolina, Tennessee,
Utah, and Wisconsin.
Besides the general economic
state, employment experts in
several areas blamed cutbacks in
recreational funds for the job
squeeze. President Nixon an-
nounced last week that $12.5 mil-
lion in federal money will be
spent this summer for 8-to-13-
year old youngsters.
But in Charleston, W. Va., bud-
get cuts mean the elimination of
36 proposed rural playgrounds,
summer busing programs, sports
programs, arts and crafts in-
structions and jobs.
In San Francisco, there will be
room for only 1,500 summer
school students in contrast to last
year's 9,000. The 1971 summer
school program for Chinese and
Spanish speaking bilingualbclas-
ses was eliminated altogether.
In Ann Arbor, problems en-
countered in balancing a tight
city budget have cut back on
funds for summer youth employ-
ment and recreation.
Several programs nave been
established, some on a volunteer
basis, to find jobs for young peo-
ple, but the city has been unable
to contribute as substantially as
at has in former years.
