SINCE THE first workshop, many of us feel more at home with the problems of medical education. We have learned something about principles of education, methods, evaluation, and motivation. The previous conferences have been published and serve as guides for this conference.
The subject for this year's conference is "Graduate Training in Dermatology." No one can doubt that there is a demand for increased numbers of qualified dermatologists. The types of trained persons needed in any clinical speciality have become more and more aggregated into two large groups —the teacher-researcher-clinician and the practicing clinician. Both are essential in fulfilling the demands put upon any specialty. In our specialty there has been and will continue to be great and constructive overlap in the two groups. If there had not been, the specialty would not have flourished or survived.
Stated briefly, our purposes are: first, to review the status of training
