In 1946, Dr. Karl and Dr. Will Menninger established a training program for psychiatrists to treat returning veterans from World War II. The former Army hospital in Topeka was the base. They assembled a faculty for the first class of 108 physicians, and the Menninger School of Psychiatry became the largest training center in the world.
There was an emphasis on a didactic curriculum and a team approach to diagnosis and treatment. The model for diagnostic case study was elaborated by Dr. Karl in his "Manual for Psychiatric Case Study".
