The relation of psychiatry to medicine has, until quite recent years, been very unimportant, extremely tenuous, and quite unsatisfactory. Psychiatry has been considered, and with considerable justification, a very poor relation of medicine. This conception of its status is, however, largely a thing of the past, and as psychiatry itself has advanced, so also has its relation to general medicine. As a matter of fact I am not sure that further improvements in this relationship, to be immediately expected, will not have to come from the other side of the fence, so to speak, that is, from general medicine itself.
