• Many resources are now available to the physician who wishes to keep up to date. The extent to which he utilizes them varies; he may neglect them entirely, or select what he thinks most suitable, or join a group in which attendance at certain meetings or courses is required. There is evidence of a dearth of programs of postgraduate education specifically designed for general practitioners, and evidence that some of the programs given have left much to be desired. The field bristles with challenges.
