Abstract
The difficulty of predicting the kind of people needed in occupational medicine in the future is discussed in relation to the problem of formulating a progressive training program for the industrial hygienist. The author cites the difficulties in forecasting government regulations which may further syphon off the time of physicians, as one problem in forecasting and supports a varied educational approach that includes chemists and biologists, as well as physicians. In order to meet the future demands for trained personnel, the author also recommends that short term training be given to those already in the field.
