Challenges for the Medical School

Facing challenges from local physicians who wished to stop the medical school, Scully describes the difficulty in convincing accrediting bodies and skeptics who questioned the survivability of the small school. With little state funding and few personnel, Scully worked as both an associate dean and instructor while the school was still in its two-year format. After Dean Smith took a sabbatical, Scully begins talking about some of the transitional methods the school took to begin morphing into a four-year school.
