ior the purpose of giving gratuitous medical advice to
liersons in necessitous circumstances, not receiving
' larochial relief, and is conducted by various medical
fficers, each giving advice in a special department

Uniques twice weekly. Patients unalile to come to
he dispensary are visited at their own houses by
tudents under the supervision of the medical officers.

ions, but advice being gratuitous, it is expected that
hose who are able will pay for medicine supplied.
