Students were especially apprehensive about taking on full responsibility for patient care. Many hoped to go into group practice to mitigate this concern.
Others chose to specialize so they could be confident of knowing one field. These concerns show that the medical student is still idealistic about helping the patient, even though he was willing to take short cuts in his academic work.
At the end of four years of medical school, the medical students still identify themselves as students, not as professionals. A lot of the results of this study are not surprising.

In fact, some of them are intuitively obvious. The researchers did a thorough job of documenting the student views and showing that they were collectively held. The book was published in , so it is a interesting that most of their observations still seem to ring true. A follow-up study on student culture might look into how having many more women in medical school has changed the culture as well as the influence of the growing migration to specialties over general practice.

It's one of those classics you have to read if you're studying the Profession of Medicine. Definitely skimmable and an easy read, there's a lot of detail in there you can probably skip over. I wouldn't read this for fun, but as an academic read, it's useful to know what people are referring to. It's from the 50s, and there have been a lot of changes in medical training since, so who knows what this means for today's doctors.

Howard S. Books by Howard S. Trivia About Boys in White. No trivia or quizzes yet. But more likely, and more frequently, they probably had White teachers to whom it applied. To what extent does their bell toll for us? Eddie Moore, Jr.
I want that book to exist! Teaching Black boys is a task that, according to recent statistics, the educational system is not accomplishing with consistent success; in fact, the Black boys who are flourishing in our schools are often doing so because they had support outside of school. Too often, those who succeed are doing so in spite of us.
The stories of successful Black men — while including White women teachers who see them clearly and support them — inevitably include many more stories of misunderstandings, low expectations, and a helplessness on the part of White women in the face of larger, societal tropes about race.serbilerock.cf
These are sand traps, potholes, temporary pitfalls that Black boys land in. They're stuck in it, too. I know these sandtraps well. I grew up in an almost all-White community where we never talked about race because we thought it was more dignified to be colorblind. Our failure to talk about race meant we failed to recognize and talk about racism.
And so when racist messaging snuck into our homes at night and convinced us that White people were safe and Black people were dangerous, we had no tools for combating it.
We bought it. And those messages lived on in our unconscious minds when we grew up and became teachers. Through my relationships, I was overcoming many of the falsehoods I'd learned about Black people The White women teachers who are effective teachers of Black boys know the tropes, the potholes, the pitfalls, that threaten to consume Black boys. They also know the fears that Black children and their families hold about how success in school might be mutually exclusive with Black cultural and linguistic styles. They work to build schools where Black students can be successful without having to be someone besides themselves.
But how? This book is about the big picture. The children themselves are not the puzzle, nor are their families or communities. Each of us — teachers, administrators, policy makers, etc.

Each of us plays a role in racism. Each of us is part of this puzzle. The first and most critical part of teaching Black boys is understanding.
