If Students Are Not Customers, What Are They?
D'Eon, Marcel F.; Harris, Cille
Academic Medicine, v75 n12 p1173-77 Dec 2000
Considers ethical models on which to base the relationship between medical students and faculty (clientism, paternalism, and fiduciary) and selects fiduciary for its basis in mutual trust, respect, and responsibility. Outlines support for a more student-centered model of medical education, concluding that warnings about viewing students as customers may be premature or inappropriate. (EV)
