Why Change?

Why Change? Society demands it. It has been more than 100 years since the last major change in medical education in this country.

Changes in medicine include:

  • The shift in the nature of disease from acute illness to chronic multisystem disease
  • Our knowledge about disease and management
  • The desire of patients to participate in their own health care delivery
  • The explosion of technology and biomedical informatics
  • The financing and organization of the healthcare delivery system
  • The organization and operation of the academic medical centers
