The Physician and Group Practice

JAMA. 1959;170(14):1750. doi:10.1001/jama.1959.03010140130029

Since World War II group practice has become a subject of widespread interest and discussion. Despite this, there have been few really useful publications on the subject. This book fills the void. It is biased in favor of groups, but that is what is intended and this enhances its value. In spite of this bias, arguments for and against groups are ably brought out. Starting with a brief, but pertinent, historical chapter, the reader is led through a series of interesting and useful discussions of practically all of the topics concerning group practice. The various forms of group structure are discussed and evaluated in a meaningful way. How to start a group and whether to join one are questions that are explored in a helpful manner. Problems encountered in groups, benefits gained from them, steps to take in solving problems, and methods of working through difficulties encountered are all explored
