People are central to all of the projects discussed in this Symposium. Much of what we want to do depends on a properly trained and educated professional. I do not wish to minimize the importance of our laboratories, our equipment, the "things" that are central to research, but I suggest that we may have disproportionately funded these "things" to the neglect of the core of the process—the investigator, or, in the training program, the preceptor. The central problem here for physicians is an economic one brought about by multiple causes, especially by increasing reliance of physicians in academic medical centers
