The 37th Annual Report is reproduced in the Education Number of The Journal since the Internship and Residency Number has been discontinued in favor of separate publication and distribution of the Directory of Approved Internships and Residencies.

The expected plateau of available positions did not develop, and the 50,468 total available internships and residencies projected for 1964-1965 is the highest ever. Of the grand total of 40,936 graduate medical trainees serving on Sept 1, 1962, 8,805 or 22% were interns, 29,239 or 71% were residents, and 2,892 or 7% were in other types of specialty training. Graduates of foreign medical schools comprised 23% of all interns and residents on duty and 35% of "other" trainees.
