The present report is based on my personal observations in seventeen medical centers of Europe during May, June and July of 1926, on printed material and letters from twelve other European medical centers in response to inquiries during the fall of 1926, and on personal communications from American physicians who visited these and other European medical centers during 1926.

Many American physicians are familiar with the opportunities for graduate medical education in Europe prior to the war. Hence an historical survey will be omitted and attention confined to a study of the changes that have occurred since the war, and to the present status.

CHANGES IN GRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION  The principal changes in conditions since the war are in:1. The teaching personnel.2. The mental attitude of medical teachers as affected by social depression or stimulation in their country.3. The lack of financial resources for equipment.
