The Directory for 1960 was presented with an improved format and was also furnished to all fourth-year medical students, bound with a special cover as the Directory of the National Intern Matching Program. Because of the continued increase in size of this directory, and because of the very special nature and limited interest in the detailed lists of approved programs, it has become impractical to include it in the Internship and Residency Number of The Journal for general distribution to all subscribers.
The Directory will accordingly be distributed free of charge to all hospitals, institutions, agencies, and organizations known to the Council to have an interest in and need for it. A special list has been prepared for distribution both within the United States and abroad, and it is hoped this distribution can be completed within 6 weeks of appearance of the Internship and Residency Number of The Journal.
