Naval Summer Training for Medical Students.—
One hundred eighty-two ensigns (medical) are participating in summer cruises at 16 naval teaching hospitals and nine naval medical research activities.

In addition to receiving the full pay and allowances of their rank, these officers receive excellent on-the-job training commensurate with their professional attainments while serving at either a naval hospital or naval medical research activity. These programs begin July 1 of each year and end June 30 of the subsequent year.
