On behalf of the Federated Council of Internal Medicine's Task Force on Curriculum, we thank Dr. Tachauer for his favorable comments on our recently published report. It has been heartening to see how he and other program directors have viewed this work: not as internal medicine's complete and final curriculum but rather as a base of essential clinical and integrative competencies to which additional curricula can be added. As Dr. Tachauer notes, the resource guide does not include competencies in alternative and complementary medicine, nor does it provide a list of suggested literary and artistic works that will help develop resident's humanistic qualities. That is not to say that these areas are unimportant. When it comes to fashioning a complete curriculum, particularly one that reflects the educational values of each institution, there is still much work that program directors and faculty need to do.
