Medical Education, 1922-1924. Bulletin, 1925, No. 31
Colwell, N. P.

This bulletin documents: (1) a quarter century's progress in medical education, including inadequate governmental control over medical education, action by a voluntary agency, legal power v. publicity, greatly enlarged teaching plants, hospitals as related to medical education, hospital internships, and the hospital as an important educational factor; and (2) newer problems in medical education, including higher cost of medical education, scholarships and loan funds, the medical curriculum, graduate medical education, limitation of enrollments, specialization in medicine, and changes in general practice. In 20 years, medical education in the United States has undergone a marvelous improvement, so that the medical schools of this country are at least on a par with those of other leading nations. Remaining problems are chiefly those due to the other improvements made. Readjustments will be made which will doubtless bring about the desired results. (Contains 5 footnotes, 4 tables, and 2 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
