This is the seventeenth volume of the history of the U. S. Army Medical Department in World War II prepared by the Historical Unit, U.S. Army Medical Service, and published under the direction of the Surgeon General. It is the first of three projected volumes dealing with Internal Medicine. The other volumes which have appeared so far have dealt with Administration, Preventive Medicine, General Surgery, and a number of Surgical Specialties.

The present volume, entitled Activities of Medical Consultants, deals with the organization and activities of the consultant system. Its nine chapters were written by thirteen authors, the majority of whom had been distinguished clinicians in civilian life and who had served during the war as Consultants either in Overseas Theaters, in the Zone of the Interior, or both. Although a Consultant System had functioned in World War I, the peace-time Army of the thirties had not recognized a need for a consultant service in its medical operations.
