Challenges in Medical Education

Student debt

Kenneth Simons, MD, Chair of the Section of Medical Schools at AMA, talks at the Annual AMA Delegation about the challenges in medical education, the first of which is student debt. There are also fewer PGY1 places so some students will graduate with no place to go. Other issues include professionalism and whether the MCAT will be changing.
