The Reform of Medical Education in the United States, 1900-1932

The Reform of Medical Education in the United States, 1900-1932

Date: December 1971
Creator: McCarty, Robert L.
Description: In 1900 the United States had more medical schools than the rest of the world combined. Many of them were commercial institutions devoted to making profits rather than to educating men to perform competently within the medical profession. The profit incentive precipitated low educational standards and made American medical practice decidedly inferior to medical practice almost anywhere else in the civilized world. By 1900 medical education had become pernicious, threatening the health of the nation and the future of the American medical profession. This thesis discusses the efforts to reform medical education practices.
