16 (kJtsbMffl ReQisfg^Moil GQlesbuffl, III. Wednesday, May 9, 1973 Knox Will Help Train Physicians A cooperative program designed to shorten the total time needed to educate physicians by providing some basic science courses at a private college campus has been announced by Dr. James A. Campbell, president of Rush- Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center at Chicago and Knox College in Galesburg. The Rush-Knox physician training program is the first developed in medical education by the Rush University network of affiliated colleges ar.d universities. A COORDINATED program in nursing and allied health education was announced last year at Knox with the formation of the educational network. Knox College will provide a basic science curriculum to first-year Rush Medical College students, and in many cases simultaneously provide the fourth year of baccalaureate studies. The program will begin in September 1973 with an enrollment of 10 students. "Establishing new medical schools and expanding existing medical schools require extremely high capital expenditures," Campbell said. "The Rush-Knox program follows the recommendations of the report 'Education in the Health Fields for the State of Illinois,' given to the State Board of Higher Education in June 1968, and will utilize already existing facilities and qualified faculty on the liberal arts college campus to teach basic medical science. This mini- nJzes the need for construction of facilities and creates the possibility of increasing medical school enrollment." "IN ADDITION," Campbell said, "some students may wish to take advantage of learning the core science curriculum on a campus where they may also take advantage of the unique opportunities in the areas of the arts and letters available on a liberal arts college campus." "Knox College welcomes the opportunity to participate in this innovative and imaginative program directed toward assuming an appropriate role in meeting the growing manpower needs of health care delivery systems," a Knox spokeseman said. "It is especially gratifying to have the college's ... resources of faculty personnel, plant and equipment recognized In such tangible fashion by Rush University." The initial year of the program has been designed with several groups of students especially in mind — students who do not have the bac- calureate degree who may earn credit for the degree as well as being enrolled in Rush Medical College; students with baccalaureate or advanced degrees but with less than optimum backgrounds in the sciences who may take a full academic year to prepare for Phase II at the Medical Center campus, and other students who definitely plan to take a 4- rather than a 3* year program. "CLEARLY, the Rush-Knox program constitutes a significant step in the direction of modifying the long-established rigid structure for the education of physicians," the Knox spokesman said. The curriculum, developed by representatives of Rush Medical College and Knox College, spans a standard 9- month academic year. It incorporates instruction in cell and organ physiology, anatomy, genetics, microbiology and immunology, biochemistry, pharmacology, behavioral sciences and introductory clinical training. Appropriate time is provided to pursue elective* in other areas. The Rush Medical system of providing student-patient contact beginning the first week in medical school will also be followed at Knox. Students in the Rush-Knox program will receive their clinical experi ence through the Rush clinical faculty at OeJestnifg cottage Hospital, ens of seven community hospitals in the Rush network of affiliated hospitals. These are located throughout Illinois and provide the student with an opportunity to receive clinical training in a community setting where he might eventually practice. The Rush faculty determines the criteria for admission to the program and is directly responsible for the selection ot candidates. Faculty holding joint appointments at Knox and Rush and other Knox faculty participate in the screening of applicants for positions. Students in the Rush-Knox program will utilize the facilities of the institution's new 96.2 million Science-Mathematics Center, completed in 1971. Knox, established in 1837, has an enrollment of about 1,350 students. Mercer County** Meal Program's Director Resigns ALEDO — The resignation of Mrs. Denise Miller, coordinator of the Mercer Mobile Meals program, was accepted by members of the project's volunteer commit* tee at a meeting May 2.
