The attending surgeons and physicians of Philadelphia have organized an association with the express object of extending courtesies to visiting physicians. The secretary of the association, Dr. H. H. Wharton, keeps a roster of clinical lectures and demonstrations, and also a list of operations in prospect. In this way every visitor may learn, without delay, of operations in which he may be especially interested and the appointments of men whom he particularly desires to meet. On the other hand, the members of the association are promptly informed of the presence of distinguished visitors in the city, so that proper attention may be given to them. Similar organizations should be in operation in all our medical centers.
