The Best Method of Teaching, Obstetrics and AIDS in Obstetric Teaching free pdf Excerpt from The Best Method of Teaching, Obstetrics and Aids in Obstetric Teaching It is a little more than seven years ago that our honored fellow, Dr. Theophilus Parvin, at the thirteenth annual meeting of this academy, made, as the majority of us will recollect, a most earnest plea for practical obstetrics in the courses of instruction given by our medical colleges. It was then clearly shown by him that while the science of obstetrics was admirably taught in many of our American medical schools, the art of midwifery was and had been sadly neglected- that the vast majority of American medical students graduated each year without ever having witnessed, still less having had charge of, a case of labor- that in many medical schools not even the practical diagnosis of pregnancy by palpation and auscultation was taught. The truth of these statements has never been questioned. Up to that time it had been customary in this country for most medical students to graduate either without any practical knowledge of midwifery, or with such only as they were able to obtain by witnessing an occasional case in a clinic, or possibly by treating women in confinement in their own homes without the supervision or aid of an instructor. The result was inevitable. The art of obstetrics was learned by the young practitioner often at the expense of serious if not fatal injury to his first confinement cases. During the past decade a revolution has been in progress in the teaching of medicine in this country. The two and three-year courses are gradually but surely being replaced by four years of instruction- college terms of five, six, or seven months are being lengthened to eight and even nine. The haphazard theoretical or didactic teaching of the old two-year course has already been largely supplanted by systematic recitations and practical and thorough laboratory instruction. The clinical instruction to large audiences of former years is generally supplemented by practical clinical work performed by small sections of the class. In many medical colleges it is undoubtedly still customary to cling to the old form of lecture delivered to large audiences. It is, however, gradually but surely being replaced by systematic graded courses of practical and clinical instruction. Has the subject of obstetrics, usually classed as the last of the seven fundamental divisions of medicine, kept pace with the remaining six in this reform? To a certain extent, yes. As to the question whether it has advanced with the same rapidity as the others, we are compelled to answer in the negative. The history of medical progress in the past few years certainly points to some reform in the teaching Read before the American Academy of Medicine, Atlanta, May 4, of the art of midwifery, shown in marked improvements in the matter of instruction in colleges already possessing lying-in departments, and in the establishment of new institutions whose main purpose is the imparting of practical instruction, not only to the undergraduate student, but to the graduate physician as well. Ten years ago not a single medical school in New York city, for instance, required its students even to witness cases of confinement before graduating. At that time there were nine institution in New York either wholly devoted to lying-in patients, or with lying in departments attached, and in none of these was systematic instruction in obstetrics given. To-day six medical schools require that each student before graduation shall have attended at least six cases of confinement, and there are some thirteen institutions devoted wholly or in part to obstetrics, five of these giving systematic instruction to students in midwifery. In spite of these facts, there appears to be no doubt that the teaching of obstetrics generally, throughout the country, is at this time anything but what it should be, and that "clinical instruction is largely conspicuous by its.
