Little Rest for Medical Faculty

Teaching, Study, Ward
DutyCrowd Schedules

* * *

* * *


Students at the University med-
ical school pursue an intensive,
tightly-scheduled study program,
but the lives of the professor-doc-
tor-research men who staff the
faculty are equally rigorous.
The medical school teaching
system calls for small class sec-
tions and numerous teachers and,
from resdient physicians to full
professors, faculty men must
work constantly to keep abreast
of new developments in their
fields in order to present theira
students with the newest and best
in medical education.
DR. PAUL S. BARKER, profes-
sor of internal medicine, is repre-
sentative of many other doctors
on the staff in his teaching and
hospital work.
Dr. Barker's working day is
filled with duties which occupy
every available minute and
often encroach on his lunch
As a member of the senior staff,
he gives lectures in his depart-
ment to junior and senior medical
DR. BARKER is also in charge
of one of the women's wards, and
is ultimately responsible for the
work of the interns and resident
physicians who are assigned to
the ward.
Most of his morning is spent
in visiting the ward, accompan-
ied by small groups of medical
students who help when need-
ed and learn from watch~ng
Almost every lunch hour in-
cludes a conference with the hos-
pital board or members of a de-
partment staff.
Dr. Barker's afternoons are
more like the office hours of a
doctor in private practice and are
spent seeing patients from the
outrpatient clinic.
The day is often concluded with
another committee- meeting or
* * *
IN ADDITION to routine hospi-
tal duties, most of the doctors

take part in the hospital's extra-
mural and resident programs and
are called on to visit other hos-
pitals throughout the state to
lecture and compare ideas.
A sudden call to speak on
some relatively unfamiliar as-
pect of his field keeps the doc-
tor constantly studying his sub-
Even if he had the time, it
would be difficult for a doctor to
keep up on all his medical reading.
FREQUENT medical conven-
tions offer him a chance to find
out what doctors at other schools
are doing on such problems as can-
cer and rheumatic fever.
Conventions also furnish a break
in the strenuous and exhausting
but nevertheless rewarding work
which falls to the lot of the med-
ical school faculty.
