In the information in this issue of The Journal in regard to the projected financing of medical education and research during 1955-1956 it will be observed that grants for research and teaching from outside sources will make funds available for these activities equivalent to about two-thirds of the amount projected for basic operational budgets derived from government appropriations, endowment, tuition, general university appropriations, and gifts. Although the medical schools do finance from their basic budgets some of the facilities, equipment, general administrative, and some of the personnel factors involved in these special activities, only 23 of the 81 medical schools in the United States report a total of slightly over $1,500,000 allocated to research from their basic operational budgets. In other words, nearly 40 times as much support for research and special teaching projects is anticipated from outside sources as is to be derived from basic operational budget allocations.
