Download PDF for this date

The annual meeting of the New York State Medical Society last night approved a report urging that refugee physicians be placed on a basis of equality with American doctors regarding commissions in military service. “Otherwise, it would be an injustice to our native graduates of American colleges, as they would be called to duty and their practice would be left to the alien physician and graduates from foreign medical schools,” the report said.
