Changing the model
Health care in the United States has changed dramatically since the publication of Abraham Flexner's report on medical education in 1910, but medical education has not always adapted to those changes. Dr. Richard Simons, the senior associate dean of medical education, is leading an effort to rethink medical education at Geisel. The result will be a redesigned curriculum that will better train students to provide care. Read more about Simons's thoughts on the changes that are needed in his essay "Training for transformation" from the Fall 2012 issue of Dartmouth Medicine. Or, to learn more about the curriculum redesign effort, follow the links below.
