The concern that there are too few generalist physicians and too many specialists is part of the ongoing health care debate.
Medical educators have been challenged at the graduate and undergraduate levels to educate more generalists.
While some question the actual effect of medical education on the choice of a generalist career, others strongly express the view that a generalist curriculum influences graduates to pursue a career in primary care. 1,2 Residency training programs are largely based in hospitals, and pediatric practice is largely community based.
The terms educational malpractice, educational mismatch, and, most recently, educational dysfunction have been used to describe the difference between the educational and practice experience.3.
