To Conduct a Telephone Survey of Physicians Re: Televised Clinical Science Services. [Final Report], January 1, 1967, to December 31, 1967.
McGuinness, Aims C.; Menzel, Herbert
Around 1,000 physicians were contacted in a telephone survey to ascertain their opinions of the weekly televised Clinical Service Seminars of WNYC-TV, Channel 31. These findings were then compared with the results of a written survey conducted in 1964. General practitioners and internists who viewed at least one-fourth of the programs were as prevalent in 1967 as 1964, and intermittent viewers were more numerous in 1967 than 1964. Eighty-two percent of the physicians offered favorable comments. About two-fifths of the physicians interviewed considered the chief benefit of the series to be new information, and another two-fifths saw it as a vehicle for furnishing reviews and refresher material.
