Abstract

Traditional medical schools have been said to emphasize research at the expense of service or teaching. This statement may be true of the balance of prevalent attitudes, a research-and-disease focus is characteristic of faculty views. Medical faculties have deservedly accepted credit for the glories of present-day medicine—the molecular biological revolution, new modes of imaging and diagnosing, and new surgery and drugs. Therefore, faculties must accept their roles in contributing to the presently perceived deficiencies of modern medicine and take part in solving the problems.
