August 23, 2005
  • Only 17 percent of medical students are very satisfied with their curriculum, according to a survey released Monday by the American Medical Student Association. Among the areas in which many students said that their curriculum was inadequate: ethics, bioterrorism, health disparities, and the business of medicine.
  • The Vermont Supreme Court last week rejected an appeal by a former lecturer of the University of Vermont over the decision of the university not to reappoint her. The lecturer had been a leader of efforts to unionize the faculty.
  • A new survey on student spending habits finds -- among other things -- that they purchase 16 percent of their textbooks online and spend an average of $410 annually on clothing without college logos. The survey was sponsored by the National Association of College Stores.
