Abstract: 

In the centennial year of the Carnegie Foundation's ground-breaking Flexner Report that radically changed medical education, Carnegie has released another call for reform. The authors of Educating Physicians: A Call for Reform of Medical School and Residency write that a new vision is needed to drive medical education to the next level of excellence. "The future demands new approaches to shaping the minds, hands and hearts of physicians."

This study of medical education was part of a larger program of research by the Carnegie Foundation on preparation for the professions. Educating Physicians is a companion to reports on educating the clergy, lawyers, engineers, and nurses.
