Medical schools reboot for 21st century
from National Public Radio
Medicine has changed a lot in the past 100 years. But medical training hasn't — until now. Spurred by the need to train a different type of doctor, some top medical schools around the U.S. are tearing up the textbooks and starting from scratch. Most medical schools still operate under a model pioneered in the early 1900s by an educator named Abraham Flexner. The University of Michigan is one of many med schools in the midst of a major overhaul of their curricula.
