A History of Yale's School of Medicine

This chapter describes the problems faced by C. N. H. Long as he assumed the deanship; foremost of these was insufficient funds, a problem that had plagued the medical school since its inception. One of the main reasons for the financial difficulties was the support given to the hospital, both direct and indirect, through the budgets of the clinical departments. Unfortunately, the medical-school deficits came at a time when the rapid increase in the university's educational costs far outstripped the increase in income. At a Board of Permanent Officers meeting in December 1946, President Seymour warned that “the question as to whether the university can afford a four-year medical school must be frankly faced.” Earlier that year, Seymour had identified the medical school as a fund-raising priority to the corporation; the school needed additional funding “as provision against the mounting costs of medical education and to strengthen the staff in medicine and nursing.” .
