Learning to Heal is the best description I have read on the development of US medical schools, and it's an informative reminder to all US medical graduates of where their education came from.
Kenneth Ludmerer's excellent book tells the fascinating story of how the United States achieved its world leadership in medical education... The best study yet of the origins of modern medical education.
A brilliant interpretation of the origins of modern medical education... A stunning achievement.
An excellent work of scholarship, compressing a relatively vast literature into a readable and informative volume.
Learning to Heal should be recommended reading for every student, practitioner, faculty member, or administrator concerned with the past, present, and future of American medical education and practice.
A first-rate storyteller.
