Summary

America's medical residency training programs have come a long way since the late nineteenth century, but changes in the nature of hospital care have some questioning how best to facilitate high-quality care and high-quality education. Cynthia Whitehead welcomes a thorough appraisal of U.S. residency education in a review of Let Me Heal: The Opportunity to Preserve Excellence in American Medicine.

  • The reviewer is at the Wilson Centre, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, and Women's College Hospital, Toronto, ON M5S 1B2, Canada. E-mail: cynthia.whitehead{at}utoronto.ca
