Training in Industrial Medicine in the Air Force.—
The highly industrialized operations now in use by the U. S. Air Force as a result of new and more complex weapon systems are creating a demand on more qualified medical officers in industrial medicine. To satisfy this requirement, the surgeon general has set up a training program for physicians now in the Air Force to attend one of several civilian medical institutions for a three-year period of instruction. The first two years will be spent in classroom activities at the institution, and the last year as a resident in an approved medical facility. This training will lead to the degree of doctor of science in industrial medicine, as well as satisfying the basic requirements of the physician for certification by the specialty board in industrial medicine.
