Training grants were designed to recruit and train academicians via the research route. One half of the 70 eligible training centers in 1970 had received training grants at some time. In 1969 through 1970 training grants provided stipends for 100 (17%) of the total 600 and 70 (37%) of the 190 final-year training positions. In 1969 through 1970 training grants provided $1,837,000 or 7½% of the budget of 81 training centers. Between 1958 and 1969 through 1970, a total of 487 trainees received postdoctoral stipends. Of these trainees, 161 (33%) are full-time teachers, 146 (30%) are part-time teachers, and 180 (37%) are full-time practitioners. Approximately 48% of today's academicians and 10% of today's practitioners have received direct stipend support. Among 12 supporting agencies, training grants were ranked as second or third in importance to American dermatology in the last ten years.
