The program is a masterpiece. Secretaries, general committees, and a dedicated staff have gone all out to make the 1961 session one to be remembered. Down-to-earth presentations will highlight the clinical features, notably discussions and demonstrations of new techniques, new diagnostic aids, and definitive treatment. Motion pictures and closed-circuit television will dramatize the spoken word.
The research program will be a striking innovation, attracting research workers with a special interest in medicine and medical practice. New life will be put into obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics, neurology, psychiatry, surgery, and nutrition, clinical applications stressed throughout.
