Medical education and the American healthcare system

Chapter

Abstract

  • American medical schools rank among the best in the world. Typically these schools have quality research facilities, advanced technology and well-trained faculties. They all have high standards of admission and their graduates are readily accepted into the medical profession and by the public at large upon meeting the requisite qualifications for their area of practice. However, the medical profession has experienced radical changes over the past decades as society itself has changed, and many of these changes have affected medical education or – in some instances – medical schools themselves have served as a pipeline to change.
