It is important to realize that American Medicine as practiced today is preponderantly medicine of the community hospital. Figures compiled by the American Hospital Association in 1957 show that for every bed in a university affiliated hospital there are almost four in community (non-university affiliated) hospitals which have been accredited by the Joint Commission. The latter group is divided almost evenly between those which support internships and/or residencies and those which do not.1 In addition, there is a substantial number of community hospitals which offer approved residency training of one sort or another but do not have interns.
