ABSTRACT

In regard to the American Board of Internal Medicine, the first point that I would make to you is that the Board, in considering the training required for internal medicine, still feels that a minimum of four years of training beyond graduation from medical school is required. I mention this because of the recommendation in the Millis Report, etc, that the internship be abandoned and the period of specialty training thereby be reduced by a year. We do not care whether the name of the internship is changed or not particularly, since the great majority of the people coming into internal medicine have a straight medical internship; but we do feel strongly that four years of training are required.

Our second consideration since we are certifying people largely for the practice of internal medicine is that each of our candidates should have a broad training in internal medicine as well
