Abstract

The total number of the fellows of the American Medical Association in 1884 according to the Journal, was 4,108. In 1890 the number was 3,779, and in 1894 it was 4,095. From the three groups of figures given embracing a period of ten years, we learn that the growth of this representative body of the American medical profession has been almost at a standstill, though the number of physicians in the United States is about seventy thousand. According to the figures above presented there was a decrease of the Association's membership of 329, due perhaps, in part, that during this period have been created the Gynecological and Surgical, the Military Surgeons, and the American Public Health Associations, all of which, like the British Medical Association, with its sixty-one branches in England, Scotland, Ireland and abroad are offshoots or branches of the parent association.
