Beyond Working Hours: Part II. Incentive to Improve.
Summary of "Beyond Working Hours: Part II. Incentive to Improve."
: Efforts to limit resident work hours are conceptually flawed. A fundamental solution to resident service requires funding, which currently is not feasible. An equally fundamental structuring of the system of surgical resident education is feasible and should be attained.

Veterinary Service, Military
A corps of the armed services concerned with animal medicine, the chief interest of which is the care of government-owned working dogs (as in the military police units), working horses (as in state funerals), and working military dolphins (as in undersea exploration and other activities). In the United States Army Veterinary Corps animal medicine overlaps and interconnects with biomedical research using laboratory research animals. A related activity is laboratory animal care. The Corps provides limited care for privately owned animals of military personnel through non-appropriated funds. Military service veterinarians in the United States Army must be graduates of accredited veterinary schools and must have a state license. (Telephone communication with Lt. Col. William Inskeep II, U.S. Army Veterinary Corps, October 4, 1994)
