Abstract

This review covers the growth in the numbers of psychologists in U.S. medical schools from only a few individuals in 1910 to the present 2500 of them. Also described are the developments in: (1) administrative organizations of these faculty psychologists (e.g., in departments of psychiatry, behavioral science, pediatrics, medicine, neurology, rehabilitation medicine, and even autonomous departments of medical psychology), (2) their present faculty ranks, (3) salary levels, and (4) responsibilities, as well as perceived power relationships in which psychologists find themselves relative to other disciplines. Finally, some possible patterns in the future development of medical psychology during 1980-1990 are sketched, with speculations on the influence current developments in behavioral medicine and behavioral health may have on the future of medical psychology.
