  1. 2003 Student Ski Trip. The 2003 student ski trip should not impact class attendance on Friday, 1/10/03 as most students will not leave until after noon when classes are over.

  2. Handouts. Comparison prices were obtained from ALC, UVA Copy Center, and ALC. ALC will copy the second year handouts at a cost of 3 cents/page with no mark up for distribution fees. ALC will deliver the handouts to Jordan Hall on the first day of class. Thereafter, students may purchase handouts directly from ALC at their business office. Paul McIntosh will collect money from the students who want to purchase a handout and determine how many will be delivered on the first day of class. Originals must be delivered to Julie Turner by the first week of December in either hard copy of electronic format. The possiblity of incorporating handout costs into tuition as an additional fee will be explored for subsequent years. [Note: Later permission granted from Dean allowing departments to pay for handouts if funds were available.]

  3. Lecture time limits. There have been problem lately with lecturers who begin late and/or end their lectures late. Course directors should inform lecturers in their course that time limits must be strictly observed. Lecturers who have a two hour time block should take a 10 minute break at some point during the lecture.

  4. The next meeting of the Principles of Medicine Committee will be December 11, 2002, 1:30 p.m. in Jordan 1-17. Virginia Taylor will present information on the teaching elective.
