The "Health of the Public" Approach to Medical Education.
Evans, John R.
Academic Medicine, v67 n11 p719-23 Nov 1992
A growing discontinuity between medical education and the general health needs of society is examined. It is argued that there is imbalance in the training of health professionals because academic medical centers are dominated by supply-side thinking, driven by knowledge and technological advances, not patient and health expectations.
