This is a splendid outline for a course for medical technicians and will be of particular value to any one contemplating initiation of a new course. The first chapter is an introduction into medical technology and contains much information valuable to teacher and student alike.

An ideal curriculum is suggested. The subsequent chapters deal with the various divisions of medical technology. Rather than give specific tests, the text refers to a complete and excellent bibliography, so that, in effect, the student has the benefit of the foremost texts on all subjects discussed. The outline is concise yet complete and is well written. It can be highly recommended.
