To the Editor: I have been somewhat depressed by the implications in the editorial, "Stale, Soft, or Chronic" (Ann. Intern. Med. 70: 1272, 1969). Let me share a few thoughts with ANNALS readers, derived from my own experience.
Firstly, I think the emphasis on subspecialty training seen throughout medicine and the emphasis on research has meant that the identification model preferred by most students and medical residents has tended to be the laboratory-oriented teacher, often himself unaware of the bread and butter problems of everyday medical practice because so much of his professional life has been spent in academic settings.
