These two letters were written in response to a December 1972 editorial that dicussed the relationship between training programs in internal medicine and in general practice. The first is from Dr. James G. Nuckolls who recently finished training in internal medicine at Duke University where he was Chief Resident in Medicine and where he also spent a special year of study reviewing problems in community health care. The second is from Dr. Robert L. Evans who is Dean of the Rockford School of Medicine of the University of Illinois where he has developed a very attractive and impressive clinical training program centered about a family practice clinic. Both letters have a personal ring, since both men are warm friends of the editor.
To the Editor:
—I have been in the mountains of Virginia since July, and as expected, have been very busy with the mechanical aspects of health care delivery.
