Comparisons of results of 3 national surveys of psychologists in medical schools show that although many of their characteristics remained the same, increases in age and seniority were accompanied by increases in academic rank. Research continues to be done largely with mental health collaborators, as opposed to nonpsychiatric physicians, and to occupy more of the full-time PhD's and MA's time than any other activity.
