    Notes: MARYLAND MEDICAL COLLEGE. Organized 1898. An independent institution.
    Entrance requirement: Nominal.
    Attendance: Almost one-half the school is in the senior class.
    Teaching staff: 39, of whom 21 are professors, 18 of other grade.
    Resources available for maintenance: Fees, amounting to $7460 (estimated).
    Laboratory facilities: The school building is wretchedly dirty. Its so-called laboratories are of the worst existing type: one neglected and filthy room is set aside for bacteriology, pathology, and histology: a few dirty test-tubes stand around in pans and old cigar-boxes. The chemical laboratory is perhaps equal to the teaching of elementary chemistry. The dissecting-room is foul. This description completely exhausts its teaching facilities. There is no museum or library and no teaching accessories of any sort whatsoever.
    Clinical facilities: The college faculty own and conduct a hospital within a few blocks. It is essentially a private institution, of no great value to students. Less than 50 beds are free.
    The dispensary claims a fair attendance.
