Abstract

There is no need to document the value of medical research as a major factor in the constantly improving well-being of mankind. It could be convincingly contended that our knowledge of health and our control of disease have progressed farther in the last 50 or 60 years than in all the preceding countless ages of man. Furthermore, it is unnecessary to declare the value of participation in research for a medical student who anticipates a career of either full-time investigation or part-time clinical research supplementing the practice of medicine. The methods and tools of research and the nature and conduct of investigation must be learned early. A physician who has done no investigation by the time he has finished his postgraduate residency training is unlikely to make significant research contributions in his subsequent career. It is self-evident that research must continue to increase our understanding of man in health and
