The size and scope of medical schools have changed greatly in the past 40 years. As the number of medical colleges grew, from 86 in 1960 to 125 in 1995, budgets and activities expanded also. The environment faced by today's institutions is addressed in a report from the American Association of Medical colleges.
The report examinies how research support and clinical services have grown over the past decade and offers examples of medical schools and teaching hospitals that have adapted to their changed roles.
