Announcements, now widely circulated to the American medical press, indicate that the International College of Surgeons, discussed in our editorial columns1 on June 20, is about to conduct examinations for membership and fellowship for those who apply and indicate their willingness to pay $250 for the purpose. Thus it now becomes possible for a young man who wishes to find out whether or not he is a surgeon to obtain the information from three or more sources. He may submit his credentials and take the examination afforded by the American College of Surgeons, he may undertake a similar process in relationship to the International College of Surgeons, or he may no doubt within the near future apply for examination and certification by the Certifying Board in Surgery, which is in process of formation.
