This is a three-page printed pamphlet. The first page reads, '(Advance Copy) War Department Committee on Education and Special Training' and is titled, 'Special Bulletin' then 'Information for Medical Schools and Program for Premedical Students'. The body of the text discusses the schedule and requirements for medical and premedical students in the SATC, including practical and theoretical military instruction, professional instruction, and physical training. Medical schools themselves are expected to introduce military training and the War Issues course, in addition to continuing their existing programs until such a time as an official program for professional schools has been established by the government. The second page of the printed pamphlet continues from the first page. It is dated 'October 3, 1918' and signed 'Committee on Education and Special Training, By R. C. Maclaurin, Educational Director, Collegiate Section.' In the body of the text, a schedule of required courses for premedical students is prescribed, which includes both science and military instruction. On the third and back page of the printed pamphlet, there is no text.
