Jefferson Medical College
Was chartered April 7, 1826, as a branch of Jefferson College, Canonsburg, Pa.; created a separate and independent body corporate, under the name, style, and title of "The Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia," with the same powers and restrictions as the University of Pennsylvania, April 12, 1838.
Its funds are derived from the fees paid by the students attending the lectures.
The college building is situated in Tenth Street, above Walnut, and contains, besides the lecture-rooms, wards fitted up for the accommodation of patients operated on at the surgical clinics, an extensive pathological museum, and a dissecting-room. The last session was attended by 473 matriculates, 151 of whom received the degree of Doctor of Medicine at the public Commencement in March, 1874. The total number of graduates is 6352. A sum of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars has been subscribed for a fund for a new hospital, and it will probably be speedily built.
Regulations. The session commences on the first Monday of October.
The examinations are so arranged as to permit the commencement for conferring degrees to be held as early in March as is practicable. There is likewise an examination of candidates for graduation during the first week of July. The degrees are conferred on the candidates who are successful at this examination, at the annual Commencement following.

He must present to the dean of the Faculty a thesis of his own composition, correctly written, and in his own handwriting, on some medical subject; and exhibit to the Faculty, at his examination, satisfactory evidence of his professional attainments.
The degree will not be conferred on any candidate who absents himself from the public Commencement without the special permission of the Faculty.
The hours of attendance at the clinics of this College, held during the winter, spring, and autumn, are so arranged as to permit the students to attend the clinics at the Pennsylvania Hospital and the Philadelphia Hospital.
