Compared results from a survey of 108 chief psychologists at medical schools to the results of a previous survey by the 2nd author and colleagues. The current survey revealed considerable progress in changing the bylaws of university-affiliated hospitals to enable psychologists to be members of the active medical staff. Some progress has also been made achieving departmental status for psychology. These developments are discussed in the context of the maturation of psychology in medical schools.
