We should endeavor to create an influence which should secure instruction in our department by thoroughly competent men in all our schools of medicine, by men, where they can be obtained, whose whole study and practice are devoted to it. Fortunately but little remains to be done in this particular. The schools have been the first to recognize the claim of dermatology in this regard, and to furnish their students with the best opportunities of study at their command. Whereas hardly ten years ago, we had not a single officially recognized representative among the great body of medical instructors in the United States; we now have:
Professors, 4; Clinical Professors, 5; Instructors, 1; Lecturers, 6; Total, 16.
Professorships: Vermont, Bellevue, Chicago, Harvard.
Clinical Professorships: University of City of New York; College of Physicians and Surgeons; Long Island Hospital-College; University of Pennsylvania; Women's College of N. Y. Infirmary.
