Abstract

The growing interest in community-oriented medicine has aroused a multitude of definitions of this term, sometimes embracing quite different or even conflicting notions. The same could be said about community-oriented medical education. Such an education must be comprehensive, fully combining the teaching of medicine with principles of community structure and behavior. Such education must do more than simply include some components that relate to the community. Operation of out patient clinics, primary care clerkships, and courses in behavioral sciences and epidemiology are all important, yet they are not sufficient to define the program as community-oriented education.
