To the editor: In his thoughtful analysis of proposed changes in the curricula of North American medical schools (76:487, 1972), Engel asks physicians to "pause and reflect whether we may not be compounding the crisis in health care with a crisis in medical education as well."
How myopic we are at times! Health care and medical education are so intertwined that if we have a crisis in health care now, then we have a crisis in medical education too. This premise accepted, changes in the educational system must be made. The only important issue should concern planning the changes well
