▪ A conference organized by the Royal Society of Medicine Foundation was attended by 37 participants from Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia. The discussants reviewed eight precirculated papers and concluded that society's concerns about the provision, availability, and costs of health care warranted re-examination of the assumptions and priorities of medical education. To reorient medical education to the actual and perceived health care needs of the population, specific recommendations were developed in five areas that integrate the patient, physician, and population perspectives on medical education: the medical school's goals and objectives, faculty development, undergraduate and postgraduate education, educational resources, and health intelligence. The participants also devised implementation strategies.
