THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN
                    STUDENT HEALTH
  Especial attention is given to the health of the student body.
The Department of Clinical Medicine has general supervision
of the health of the students. It aims to determine the med-

Office is established for the general supervision of students
needing medical attention. It is earnestly desired that all
cases of student illness be promptly reported to this office
whether or not professional service is desired. At the same
time it is hoped that students will feel free to seek advice
concerning the care of their health.
