To the Editor: There is, it is true, nothing wrong with a broadly based education. However, the study of medicine is indeed a study of science, especially in modern times. A diversity of subjects to be studied should be encouraged, but I believe that for entry into medical school, the diversity must be phased out at the undergraduate level to give way to a greater concentration on biology, chemistry and physics. It is essential that a student just out of undergraduate college and entering the freshman year of medical school be well and truly knowledgeable of scientific concepts and principles.
