Abstract

In 1930 the Committee on Pediatric Education of the third White House Conference on Child Health and Protection passed over the question of graduate education in pediatrics and confined its study to undergraduate instruction in the medical school and to postgraduate instruction by means of short "refresher" courses for practitioners. By graduate education is meant the training of physicians as specialists. At the meeting of the American Academy of Pediatrics in Atlantic City in 1931 the Committee on Medical Education was directed to study and report on pediatrics as a restricted field of practice. This study was undertaken and was continued for two years. The first report was based on approximately 300 opinions gathered from the members of the academy as to the minimum and the ideal training and education necessary for specialists in pediatrics.1 Such a study was necessary because no factual data were available.
