Consequently aggregating these data was not appropriate. • Record keeping at host institutions was uneven, in some cases spotty and in other cases almost nonexistent, making it difficult if not impossible to identify and contact a significant number of trainees. • No appropriate comparison group could be identified. Consequently the Committee concluded that trying to identify trainees would tax resources and would not be productive.

Research laboratories were often built adjacent to clinical facilities to facilitate exchange between basic and clinical investigators. Becoming a physician-scientist was a highly sought goal and it was realistic to plan a career in which one could be a productive investigator, expert clinician, and outstanding teacher.
