Two major documents on American medical education have just been published. Both merit careful reading by everyone in medical education, from deans to residents, and perhaps even students, who occasionally are allowed to say something about curriculum. Physicians for the Twenty-First Century: Report of the Panel on the General Professional Education of the Physician (likely to become known as the GPEP report) was issued in summary form by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) at the end of September (1); the full report was published as part 2 of the November issue of the Journal of Medical Education (2). The Place of the Humanities in Medicine, a monograph (3) by Eric J. Cassell, M.D., Director of the Cornell Program for the Study of Ethics and Values in Medicine, was published by The Hastings Center in August.
