To the Editor: In 1974 an article about the evaluation of house officerships appeared in the Journal.1 It was to serve as a guide to senior medical students in their assessment of residency-training programs in internal medicine. The article listed questions that prospective house officers might ask about individual residency programs. Subsequent letters2 suggested questions that had been omitted from the original article. I believe that there was a major omission from the guidelines offered to prospective residents and fellows. The article and the letters that followed never mentioned that perhaps the key question that one must ask in. No extract is available for articles shorter than 400 words.
