HALSTED HOLMAN, M.D.
Advances in understanding of human biology and demands of citizens for improved medical care raise questions about the capacity of existing leadership in medical education to initiate needed change in the educational experience given students and young physicians. Existing attitudes and practices among faculties often provide inadequate examples for students and create a stultifying atmosphere. Examination of the nature of leadership and an involvement of students more as colleagues in the intellectual process of medicine may yield better medical and leadership capabilities within the profession in the future. Improved leadership is essential for realizing the potentials for health care in the nation.
