We publish this week, for the seventeenth consecutive year, statistics based on official reports of examinations conducted by state medical boards, and of registrations by reciprocity and other methods. During these seventeen years the work has had the hearty support and cooperation of the executive officers of the various state licensing boards, who have furnished reports of their examinations. Every report has been carefully checked with alumni lists furnished by the deans of the medical colleges, and by this cross-checking, errors have been corrected and the state boards concerned have been notified. Thus, not only have these statistics been made accurate and reliable, but also state board records have been corrected. We express our acknowledgments for the splendid cooperation of the officers of both the state licensing boards and the medical colleges by which the publication of these statistics has been made possible.
