TMC Begins new Term in September, 1891

Tennessee Medical College

The preliminary term of lectures began at Tennessee Medical college on Monday last.  The prospects for a large class are very flattering.  Efforts will soon be made to begin the erection of a hospital adjoining the college.  Such an institution is much needed to afford clinical facilities for teaching.  For the present the free dispensary will be conducted with daily clinics, where all forms of disease and injuries will be treated free of charge.  The clinics are held daily from 12 to 1 o’clock p.m.
