Abstract

A curriculum is described whereby qualified Ph.D's can become M.D.'s within a period of 18 to 24 months. It is feasible and logical not only for us, but for other schools of medicine. It is our belief that adequate safeguards have been included to preserve high quality in education while responding to the need not only for more physicians, but also for improved utilization of some of our best-trained manpower.
