PSYCHIATRIC INTERNSHIPS IN BELLEVUE HOSPITAL  The Psychiatric Division of Bellevue Hospital announces a new type of two year internship beginning July 1, 1942. Twelve two year internships will be open to graduates of class A medical schools, and previous hospital experience is not necessary. It is expected that these internships will give the required year of medicine and surgery so that those who are going on in psychiatry will not have to take a general hospital internship. The first year will consist of six months in medicine and six months in surgery in the medical and surgical wards of the Psychiatric Division. The interns in the medical and the surgical service will be responsible for the psychiatric as well as the medical and surgical work-up of their cases. In the medical service the psychosomatic relationship will be stressed, and the service will be known as a service in psychosomatic medicine.
