ALFREDO F. JACOME-ROCA, M.D.
To the editor: I read with interest the paper by G. T. Harrell in the August 1978 issue, "Medical Education in Colombia" (1).
His overall view of the problem is good and one should not expect every single subject in such a complicated field to be covered with detail. I have a few comments to make.
With regard to faculty members, I should point out that at least in some Colombian schools there are a good number of U.S.-trained specialists; they count on private practice as a major source of income just as locally trained faculty members do.
