Veterinary Medical Education and a Changing Culture.
Coffman, James R.
Journal of Veterinary Medical Education, v29 n2 p66-70 Sum 2002
Asserts that veterinary medicine needs greater participation by minority groups to incorporate their worldview into the field. Discusses how this community-oriented view is at odds with the manner in which the academy typically assesses performance, and why teaching and service should therefore be more readily and effectively evaluated and rewarded.
