As a former premed philosophy major who evolved into a radiologist who does biomedical engineering research and now works as a medical school vice dean for academic affairs, I strongly agree with your May editorial on the necessary parts of reform of premedical education.
My response is, “Let’s get started!” We don’t have enough doctors for the health care needs of our population. If we are to meet those needs, one of the crucial tasks will be to attract even more of our best and brightest students to careers in medicine.
I believe a task force of the AAMC should be charged with addressing all of the elements of reform you raise in your editorial. Perhaps the reform you suggest can be accomplished before we all retire!
