The modern teaching hospital, in close professional and administrative relationship with a university school of medicine, is a complex organism undergoing a rapid process of evolution. As such it presents new and rapidly shifting administrative problems, and these have been made the subject of Dr. Bay's comparative study, of which this book reports the results. It is clear that medical administration is as yet in a state of flux and that the methods of accomplishing the same results, even under similar conditions, vary widely. The book is essential to those engaged in various fields of medical administration and may be read with profit by physicians desiring to understand how organization may contribute to the effectiveness of their own efforts.
