General scientific meetings, postgraduate courses, clinical workshops, breakfast roundtables, scientific exhibits, color television, and medical motion pictures—these teaching media will be used to benefit the practicing physician who attends the American Medical Association's 19th Clinical Convention Nov 28 to Dec 1 in Philadelphia.
Scientific headquarters for the meeting will be in Philadelphia's Convention Hall. An attendance of 7,500, including about 3,300 physicians, is expected.
The AMA's policy-making House of Delegates will meet during the Convention at the Philadelphia Sheraton Hotel.
