Abstract

To the Editor:  —Are there many of our young physicians hesitating about entering the service? The recent letter appearing in the medical press from the office of the Surgeon-General asking for more medical men has, I believe, met a generous response. However, having spent a week here as the guest of the surgical staff of the base hospital, I have been impressed with the advantages there are for those who enter the service. No postgraduate course can equal it. No clinic is as complete in system and organization. It is the realization of any physician's fondest hopes. It is going to give America a splendidly improved medical profession. It teaches a system of efficiency that will be an asset after returning to civil practice. It is surely worth the while.
