The report of the commission sent by the Rockefeller Foundation to investigate medical conditions and medical education in China has recently been noted in The Journal.1 The Rockefeller Medical Commission to China, consisting of President Judson of Chicago University, Dr. F. W. Peabody and Mr. Roger S. Greene, made an exhaustive study of the present status of medical education and of the most pressing problems connected with a native sanitary and public health movement in China, with a view to recommending practical aid along these lines. Probably the most effective method of improving public health conditions and raising the general sanitary and social average in China will prove to be through the medium of a native Chinese medical profession, trained in western methods, and possessing the triple advantage of familiarity with local conditions, influence with their people, and scientific efficiency.
The plan is receiving increasing attention among medical leaders
