Abstract

The general tone and content of the responses received from hospital commanders and resident graduates were quite encouraging. In addition to a nearly 90 per cent response rate, many of the physicians surveyed appeared to have spent considerable time listing their thoughts about what topics a transition seminar should include and providing detailed advice to their junior colleagues on approaching the duties and responsibilities of an Army staff physician. This guidance was subsequently found to be quite valuable in the actual design and implementation of the Letterman Transition To Practice Seminar, which will be discussed in a later publication.
