This is a report of the subcommittee on Pediatric Education of the White House Conference on Child Health and Protection. The report is comprehensive and points the way toward the reforms in pediatric education which need to be started. As a result of the study, it is recommended that enlargement of the teaching facilities for pediatrics be made in the medical schools, and that the subject should be taught from the broader aspect. Two hundred hours should be the minimum time assigned to pediatrics in the four year course. The planning of pediatric education along the lines designated in this study will bring about improvement in the instruction in this field.
