Dialogue. An English professor is interviewing his American colleague

An English professor is interviewing his American colleague.

Dr. Kelly: I'm glad to have this opportunity to talk to you, Dr. Bar­ton. Do you mind my asking some questions about medical school in America?

Dr. Barton: Certainly not. What do you want to know?

Dr. Kelly: First, can students go to a medical school free of charge?

Dr. Barton: No, everyone must pay a tuition fee. The amount varies from state to state and from one school to another. A student's total expenses throughout the year are about several thousand dollars. This creates financial hardship for some people. Though each school offers a number of grants, many of the students have to work to pay part of their expenses.

Dr. Kelly: What degree does a Medical School offer?

Dr. Barton: After completing 4 years all students receive the Degree of Doctor of Medicine.

Dr. Kelly: That clears up most of my questions, Dr. Barton. It's good iо have this information from someone directly connected with the world of medicine. I hope to visit two medical schools - the Pritzker School and the Kansas University Medical School - while I'm here in (he United States.

Dr. Barton: It was a pleasure to talk with you.
