For twenty years at least the medical curriculum has been in a state of upheaval. Trends that first appeared at the beginning of the century are being opposed by contrary trends, and in some instances educational practices long since abandoned are being revived in new form. In addition to the changes in undergraduate medical education there has been a tremendous expansion in postgraduate and graduate education, but this is not our subject. The alterations in the undergraduate course are in part the outcome of attempts to include in the curriculum the many additions that have been made to specialized knowledge.
