American medicine, industry, labor, agriculture, and many other groups are presently joined in a movement to forge a practical program for the support of medical education. The members of the medical profession are making their contributions through the American Medical Education Foundation. The money thus collected is channeled into the National Fund for Medical Education, which distributes these funds, along with the donations of others, to the nation's 79 medical schools.
The contributions of many organizations interested in the future of medical education have done much to get this movement started. However, of equally great import have been the individual gifts by American physicians. To these individuals, the Directors of the American Medical Education Foundation extend gratitude—for their monetary contributions and for the example they are setting for others.
