Since the Bane report in 1959, over two-dozen books or reports have been published concerning problems of education and manpower in medicine. This useful collection of 27 short essays avoids the sluggish mainstream. Dr. Popper and his coauthors consider the same problems, to be sure, but they do so specifically in terms of developing a new medical school, particularly the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York. This new school is scheduled to open this fall.
Of special interest to medical educators, the present volume briefly discusses each of the following familiar topics: community relations, university relations, problems of medical schools, structures of medical schools, architecture, the student, and curriculum. The authors, including nine young relatively unscarred American deans, and representatives from England and Europe, have compiled an administrator's workbook.
