dc.description.abstractA structured four-year medical school curriculum is proposed by a retiree from academic medicine who returned to medical school as a full-time student. Eichna's curriculum is based on the premise that the purpose of medical education is patient care. He gives "top priority" to formal courses in medical ethics during the first two years and advocates a broad education in the biological sciences, clinical disciplines and skills, and the socioeconomic aspects of medicine. Studies in the ethics and cultural electives are needed to prepare a foundation for further knowledge, promote an understanding of the self, and instill the desired values of a doctor.
