More Residencies for Israel Physicians in U.S. Hospitals Urged

A call for the granting of more residencies and research fellowships for Israel physicians in American hospitals and medical institutions, was sounded here at the fifth annual assembly of the American Physicians Fellowship Committee of the Israel Medical Association. Several hundred of the committee’s 1,800 members attended the assembly.

In his presidential report, Dr. Morton J. Robbins, of Nashua, N. H., said that, so far, 21 Israel physicians have been brought to the United States under such fellowships and that these doctors are “putting into excellent use the knowledge of modern techniques they obtained in the United States.” He also reported that the APFC has provided the Israel Medical Association with medical books, journals and manuscripts, as well as thousands of dollars in instruments, equipment and drugs.
