Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 11. August 12, 1954

Duties of M.O

Duties of M.O.

The duties of any medical officer would be to provide preventive services, limited general practitioner services, and services connected with the mental health of students. He would co-operate with the Physical Education Officer and the staff in these matters.

This is a brief outline of what is proposed at this College. What has next to be done is to obtain Health Department approval for the scheme and to endeavour to get finance assured both for the provision of a medical officer and for the facilities that he would need. For the first time since health schemed were first mooted at this College over 10 years ago there is now a chance that something might, be done. Students should be encouraged to take advantage of the services if and when it comes and, in the meantime, should encourage all freshmen from next year on to present a medical report as requested by the College.
