Postwar graduate medical training will be in demand by numerous medical officers on demobilization, and preparations should be made to furnish the facilities for such training. This demand will be for training in the specialties as well as in internal medicine and surgery. As this demand is considered, there are at the present time many unknown quantities, but this fact should stimulate us who are certified specialists to give careful consideration to the whole specialty program and be prepared to deal with the problems as they arise or, better, before they arise. At present we do not know the duration of hostilities, the length and type of training which will be requested, the rate of demobilization or the rate of demobilization of instructing personnel of medical schools and hospitals. We do not know what casualties of medical personnel will occur, what opportunities will develop for permanent assignment
