Time to Return Medical Schools to Their Primary Purpose: Medical Education.
Abrahamson, Stephen
Academic Medicine, v71 n4 p343-47 Apr 1996
This article notes that since World War II, medical schools have experienced substantial growth in administrative activities and expansion of faculty role, largely because of strong federal support for research and competition to obtain grants. Commonsense proposals for reform are offered, but a number of obstacles to change are also seen, especially vested interests and resistance to change. (Author/MSE)
