MCV/Q, Medical College of Virginia Quarterly
After a relatively long interval in which the status quo was maintained, in the early 1950's American medical schools began to reappraise their educational programs. Many shortcomings of medical education which now have been corrected were cited as early as 1946. The Medical College of Virginia began a detailed study of its educational program. A curriculum has been designed and initiated, using the subject matter committee approach. The curriculum provides opportunity for electives, research, and free time. In conjunction with the revised curriculum, changes in grading procedures, examinations, and teaching methods have been made. A study to assess the effects of the change in curriculum also has been designed, and the entire program is under constant study to allow for additional changes as they become necessary.
