FORTY-SECOND ANNUAL PRESENTATION OF LICENSURE STATISTICS BY THE COUNCIL ON MEDICAL EDUCATION AND HOSPITALS OF THE AMERICAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
This forty-second annual compilation of medical licensure and allied statistics by the Council on Medical Education and Hospitals covers the year 1943 and includes data regarding (a) medical examining and licensing boards of the United States, the District of Columbia, the territories and possessions of the United States, (b) boards of examiners in the basic sciences, (c) the National Board of Medical Examiners and (d) examining boards in the medical specialties.The official reports which form the basis for these compilations have been contributed throughout the year by the medical licensing boards of the United States, Alaska, Hawaii and the Virgin Islands; the homeopathic medical examining boards of Connecticut, Delaware and Maryland; the eighteen boards of examiners in the basic sciences in operation last year, the fifteen approved examining boards in the medical specialties and the National Board of Medical Examiners. The homeopathic and eclectic examining boards in Arkansas and the homeopathic board in Louisiana did not license any one during the year. Likewise no physicians were registered for civilian practice in the Canal Zone. The statistics for Puerto Rico were not received in sufficient time for inclusion in this report.
