Educating Medical Teachers.
Miller, George E.
The history of educational research programs, development, and teacher training efforts in medicine is traced. Many claim that the first organized effort to study and evaluate the broad spectrum of the teaching and learning processes in medicine was developed as the Project in Medical Education at the University of Buffalo in 1955. Commitment by the Buffalo group to the idea of program outreach resulted in some related activities at the Medical College of Virginia, Stanford University Medical School, the University of Illinois Colleges of Medicine in Chicago and Urbana, and Western Reserve University (now Case Western Reserve). Efforts in medical education in the late 1950s and early 1960s were also undertaken in the United Kingdom and in Latin America. The evolution and vicissitudes of educational research units and their impact on the medical establishment are traced. The movement in educational research away from preoccupation with academic content and instructional methods to professional performance goals and health care outcomes is considered. Educational practitioner problems and system impediments to the integration of educational research into educational program development are examined. (SW)
