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)
