The literature review of continuing education in medicine surveys 282 journal articles, books, conference reports and proceedings, and other publications published between 1960 and 1970. The review is divided into the following sections: prologue, which surveys the health professions, and new directions and limitations within them; the profession and continuing education, which examines physician composition and distribution and concern for continuing education; participation in continuing education, which discusses characteristics of participants and their opinions and preferences; program organization and administration, which examines sponsors of programs, program administration, some sample programs, and recurring issues and trends; summary, which synthesizes the literature on physicians; epilogue, which summarizes participation, programs and research for the four health professions of nursing, medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry; and references. Two additional sections are included: instructional processes, which discusses small group and large group patterns of instruction, mass media, supporting devices, and organization for instructional technology; and evaluation, which covers subjective and objective assessment, and problems of evaluation.
