The national agenda calling for an increase in the number of generalists has resulted in several curricular recommendations, ones which might seriously compromise the training of medical students in surgery.
Review of the curricular needs of family physicians reveals that substantial and broad education in surgery is necessary to achieve full competency.
Currently, many such curricular objectives are met through special surgical courses and rotations during postgraduate training in family medicine.
The argument suggesting that close student interaction with surgeons is unnecessary, and will discourage students from entering generalist disciplines, does not take into account a number of important factors.
