Abstract

Medical thinking and practice must be adapted constantly to changing social requirements. Since industrial operations and materials are changing continually and often radically, there is no hope of a permanent solution to the resulting problems. To match the trend toward a better brand of clinical medicine in industry, there must be a broadening and deepening of the physiological scope of the experimental work of the laboratories devoted to occupational medicine. A proper share of the educational facilities of the United States should be used for courses of instruction for physicians in industry, and the necessary means for investigative work should be apportioned to productive research in occupational medicine.
