Community-Responsive Medicine: A Call for a New Academic Discipline.
Smith, David R.; Anderson, Ron J.
Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, v1 n2 p219-28 Fall 1990
Traces academic medicine's historical opposition to community medicine and its emphasis on traditional hospital-cased curricula subspecialties, to the neglect of primary and preventive care, community-oriented medicine, and public health. Calls for reducing barriers to basic medical services for all, and for training physicians equipped to respond to broader social needs. (CJS)
