In addition to a thorough knowledge of the Bible and its related subjects, the missionary who goes into remote areas needs to know how to maintain his own health and to meet emergencies when no professional help is available. This is done by the careful presentation of basic theoretical knowledge, as well as practical teaching of procedures in nursing and medical care, which is followed in sequence by laboratory experiments and hospital training. The teaching staff of the School of Missionary Medicine consists of twenty-four competent physicians, dentists, laboratory technicians, and nurses, who are specialists in their respective fields . The course covers two semesters of time. Although there is an academic recess at Christmas and Easter time, the training period in the hospital carries through the entire school year. It is required that in addition to completing each academic course satis­ factorily, the student complete hospital training under supervision amounting to 386 clock hours. This hospital training covers clinics in obstetrics, surgery, medicine, pedi­ atrics, nursery, and health services. Upon successful completion of the entire course including classroom studies, laboratory procedures, and hospital clinics, a diploma is given.
