The Medical Model and the Preparation of Education Professionals.
Grady, Marilyn L.
Journal of School Leadership, v3 n3 p288-302 May 1993
By reviewing the training of medical professionals, one can identify similarities to the preparation of education professionals (teachers). On a basic level, the medicine and education fields are both practice-oriented; require individuals with problem-solving, decision-making, and interpersonal skills; depend on information bases that multiply daily; and require clinical practice.
