The Relation Between Pediatrics and General Medicine*: Henry Dwight Chapin, M.D., New York

JAMA. 2017;317(14):1484. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.0643

Originally Published April 14, 1917 | JAMA. 1917;68(15):1085- 1088.

The evolution of pediatrics into the dignity of a specialty has been of comparatively recent date. It is still in process of development. Many obstacles have been encountered in the ascent of this important branch. Some questions are yet in process of settlement. The relation between pediatrics and general medicine, and the position the former is destined to occupy will be determined largely by societies and occasions such as this. It is not necessary to dwell on the great importance of pediatrics before any medical assemblage.
