The influence of the internal medicine residency extends well beyond 3 years in the professional life of an internist. The curriculum, "a plan that will determine the educational experience" (1), is both a reflection of what internists think is important about their profession and a picture of what the practice of medicine can and should be. Consensus is growing that the picture is not quite right. The environment of medicine has changed, and with this must come changes in traditional ways of training internists.
