Abstract

1. During the past 10 years there has been a marked increase in the number of psychiatrists in group medical clinics, the number of such clinics having psychiatrists having doubled since 1946.2. Although there is reluctance on the part of many clinics to add psychiatrists to their medical staffs, the psychiatrist has demonstrated his value to those group clinics with psychiatric departments, as indicated by the fact that one-third of such clinics have shown an increase in the size of this department.3. The benefits to the patient resulting from the association of a psychiatrist in a group medical clinic are discussed. Such an association enables the psychiatrist and his medical colleagues to utilize the medical skills of each other in offering over-all medical care to the patient.4. The psychiatrist in the group medical clinic is in an excellent position to counteract some of the negative feelings held by medicine in regard to his specialty and to further the integration of his specialty into the whole of medical practice.
