On the Cost of Educating a Medical Student.
Jones, Robert F.; Korn, David
Academic Medicine, v72 n3 p200-10 Mar 1997
Reviews studies of costs of medical education and looks at trends and issues in medical school cost containment. Finds curricular trends are tending to increase costs, and proposals to restructure medical education to reduce costs are generally maneuvers to transfer cost responsibility to other entities. Sees minimal opportunities for cost reduction without altering society's concept of an educated physician. (Author/MSE)
