“According to survey results, released today, physicians-in-training are receiving traditional education, but are not being offered curricula that keeps pace with the advances in the healthcare industry. As summer vacation ends and schools re-open, medical students wonder, am I receiving an education that will make me a competent physician? Results show that only 17 percent of students are very satisfied with their curricula . . .

. . . Respondents report their curriculum includes no classes/electives on:

– Business of medicine (47%)

– Technology advances in medicine (35%)

– Global HIV/AIDS (31%)

– Complementary and alternative medicine (26%)”
