This, the 42nd annual Report on Graduate Medical Education in the United States, consists of an analysis of the distribution and performance of approved internship and residency programs for the academic year 1967-1968. Except where otherwise specified, the data reported here were obtained from hospitals as of Sept 1, 1967, and therefore the performance data are one year old when published. Most tables contain a column listing the projected positions to be offered for the academic year 1969-1970.
Because the complete Directory of Approved Internships and Residencies is too large for inclusion in The Journal, only the material in the Annual Report, plus the sections on Special Studies, and Special Reports, Announcements, and Notices, are published in this issue. The remainder of the Directory is too large to be included in The Journal, so the above three portions will actually be published twice.
