A Snapshot of Medical Students' Education at the Beginning of the 21st Century: Reports from 130 Schools.
Anderson, M. Brownell, Ed.
Academic Medicine, v75 n9 suppl Sep 2000
This collection of reports on curricular structure and change in North American medical education covers almost all of the accredited medical schools in the United States and Canada (118 of the 125 in the United States and 12 of the 16 in Canada). The reports have the same basic structure so that information can be more readily compared, and they emphasize process and change rather than quantitative data. These sections provide information about each school: (1) curriculum management and governance structure; (2) office of education; (3) budget to support educational programs; (4) valuing teaching; (5) curriculum renewal process; (6) learning outcomes; (7) changes in pedagogy; (8) application of computer technology; (9) changes in assessment; and (10) clinical experiences. These profiles provide a picture of the profound changes that have occurred and are occurring in U.S. medical education. An appendix contains a glossary. (SLD)
