Abstract

More than 4,000 seniors who entered the accelerated medical education program over a year ago are now well into their intern year and will complete that training before March 31, 1944. They will thus become available for military and civilian practice three months earlier than in normal times. Even half of these, should only that small proportion be commissioned, can care medically for over 300,000 troops. If this number of men is thereby enabled to enter active service three months early, before April of next year, the accelerated program will have justified itself in supplying the men required. All medical schools are accelerating throughout the four year program except one which limits the program to the junior and senior years. All are admitting classes every nine months except one which admits a class every year and one which admits a class each quarter.
