THE National Program for Dermatology in its revised version is off the press and in the mails. Every member of the American Academy of Dermatology, of the Society for Investigative Dermatology, every resident and trainee should soon receive his copy. At last the awaited program1,2 can be perused and evaluated. The meaningful dialogue can begin!
At the outset let us emphasize the legitimacy of this report as representative of American dermatology. Generated by an ad hoc committee of the American Academy of Dermatology, the National Program has the official endorsement of the major dermatological organizations.* From them has come its financial support, the academy itself underwriting the major part. More than 60 dermatologists have contributed to the text; almost 2,000 dermatologists provided data through questionnaires.
With this corporate effort a document has been produced that is something of a log and workbook all in one. As a record there
