To the Editor:—
My attention has been called to a totally erroneous table of available beds at Erlangen University appearing in The Journal, Oct. 2, 1948, page 380. Inasmuch as Erlangen is at present the second largest university in all Germany, I would like to give the correct figures, which compare favorably with bed requirements for American teaching hospitals serving university medical schools.For the sake of accuracy, and to rehabilitate much maligned German teaching facilities, the number of available beds at this university are as follows: There is also a large state (county) mental hospital in Erlangen with additional teaching facilities. With the chairs of all branches occupied by experienced professors of high scientific qualification, Erlangen University is one of the leading and outstanding institutions of higher learning.
