Abstract

New stresses have been added to the medical life of physicians in training during the past decade. These include the newly diverse and complex sociocultural environment of the patient, new and renascent lethal diseases, widespread substance abuse, and the effects of the breakdown of the fabric of our society. These factors complicate the practice of medicine as never before. Educators must keep pace and prepare young physicians to understand and then cope with these major new forces.
