Abstract

PROCUREMENT AND ASSIGNMENT SERVICE FOR PHYSICIANS, DENTISTS, VETERINARIANS

At a meeting in Chicago of the board of the Procurement and Assignment Service with the Committees on Medical Preparedness of the American Medical Association, the American Dental Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association, a definite organization was completed for the functioning of this service in relationship to needs of professional personnel in the war.

PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR PHYSICIANS IN SERVICE  The Procurement and Assignment Service will make available shortly through publication in the periodicals of the professions concerned a tabulation of the physical requirements for physicians applying to any of the federal services.

EVALUATION OF PHYSICIANS THROUGH COUNTY MEDICAL SOCIETIES  More than two thousand county medical societies have already made available ratings of physicians available in such counties as regards their employment in essential services and their availability for the Army and Navy Medical services. Steps will be taken to speed up the completion of similar evaluations in the remaining counties.
