This is a call to the young medical men of America, to the men not yet established and who are seeking a career. The United States Army Medical Corps has eleven hundred vacancies; officers for six hundred and fifty of these are urgently needed now. It is not a sacrifice—the men who can answer this call are in any event practically within the draft age. It is a call to them to choose the Army medical service, not as a temporary vocation, but as a career. Today probably every young physician gives some thought to this choice. Few, however, consider the opportunity with a full knowledge of its advantages.
