The plan of mobilization now being projected for this country for the next five to 10 years creates special demands for the services of physicians over and above those existing in time of peace. This issue of The Journal presents two statements, one by the chairman of the Health Resources Board, the other by the Joint Committee on Medical Education in Time of National Emergency, which discuss these special demands and methods by which these demands can be met. A third article, "Supply of Physicians' Services," while not concerned directly with the demands of the present emergency, also bears on the problem because it analyzes the factors that must be considered in evaluation of the adequacy of medical services available in the United States in peacetime, a consideration that, of necessity, must be taken into account in an estimation of the additional needs of the emergency and its possible consequences.
