Donald Chambers, Perspectives in Biology and Medicine

In 1910, Abraham Flexner published the “Report on Medical Education in the United States and Canada” for the Carnegie Foundation, a document which changed the way schools trained pre-medical and medical students. As we head into the second century of modern medical training, Perspectives in Biology and Medicine has published a special issue which examines the legacy of what is commonly called The Flexner Report. Donald A. Chambers from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago served as guest editor and shares his thoughts on the special issue.
