Educating Physicians: A Call for Reform of Medical School and Residency  (047045797X) cover image
Emerging from a study of physician education by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Educating Physicians calls for a major overhaul of the present approach to preparing doctors for their careers. The text addresses key issues for the future of the field and takes a comprehensive look at the most pressing concerns in physician education today. Like the Carnegie Foundation's revolutionizing Flexner Report of 1910, Educating Physicians is destined to change the way administrators and faculty in medical schools and programs prepare their physicians for the future.
