MEDICAL SCHOOL EDUCATION

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/17/health/17chen.html?adxnnl=1&partner=rss&emc=rss&adxnnlx=1276801214-6FfTskog11tbhjoyG+PO+w an excellent summary of a very “dense” article from AIM..this conflict has been going on for 30 years..when i started at UCDavis in 1981, the curriculum had been reverted to a more “academic” program-preparing students to pass board exams..i actually liked it..rigorous and challenging…it got me off my butt to study..the article also refers to THE BEST MEDICAL SCHOOLS..and challenges the ranking system based on grants and research..could not agree more..but with the waning interest in primary care, i doubt things will change..some of the best researchers are some of the worse teachers!!!
