New medical schools are lean and mean
The rush to add medical students to fill the upcoming doctor shortage means a bunch of new medical schools. These schools have the luxury of starting a curriculum from scratch, and complying with current meded zeitgeist, these curricula are small-group-based, light on lecture, heavy on hands-on learning. Schools like this one---Cooper Medical School near Philadelphia---are springing up. Will Cooper give UPenn---the oldest medical school in the country---a run for its money?
