The Scope of Clinical Education.
Barrows, Howard S.
Journal of Medical Education, v61 n9 part 2 p23-33 Sep 1986

These objectives ensure that the scope of education includes the content, teaching/learning methods, and evaluation techniques that will result in a competent, professional product. (MLW)
