MEDICAL SCHOOL SURVEY
The Council on Medical Education and Hospitals has now completed the survey of medical schools that was begun three years ago. The procedure employed in making the study has been described by Dr. Herman G. Weiskotten,1 and some of the more significant observations were reported to the House of Delegates at Atlantic City.2 Confidential reports in graphic form have been sent to all the schools for the purpose of assisting them in strengthening their respective programs. In response to this stimulus there are already indications of considerable activity, and substantial improvements are being made in standards of admission, in numbers and qualifications of faculty personnel, and in the kind and amount of practical experience comprised in the clinical teaching. While much still remains to be done, the great majority of schools give evidence of healthy growth and development.
