Abstract

Short clinical postgraduate courses in obstetrics and pediatrics have been established by several state health departments in cooperation with medical schools and hospitals with teaching services. These courses have been developed for practicing physicians who wish an opportunity to observe and learn of the most recent advances in obstetrics and pediatrics. Where post-graduate courses had already been established the health departments have occasionally provided stipends or tuition or travel to assist physicians otherwise unable to attend the courses. These short courses are not designed to prepare physicians to become specialists in obstetrics or pediatrics.

Of the maternal and child health funds $138,984 has been budgeted by the state health agencies for intramural and extramural medical postgraduate education in obstetrics and pediatrics during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1941. This amount may include for different states either the salaries of instructors or stipends, tuition or travel for the postgraduate students.
