Abstract:

This study examined the attitudes of physicians toward continuing medical education. A survey was given to selected doctors within the US Army Health Services Command. The study found that the use of various sources of continuing education is largely dependent upon easy accessibility. The author recommends increased funds for institutions located far away from continuing education options, particularly for low density specialties. Alternative types of continuing education that can be controlled by Health Services Command, such as consultants, specialty conferences, and teleconferences, should be given maximum use.
