    Comment from New England Journal of Medicine

    *Excerpt from the New England Journal of Medicine, November 30, 2006.* This book not only succeeds in what I doubted a single author could accomplish - the book is, in fact, a useful and balanced overview of the state of medical education - but also is exactly what the author promises in his preface: 'a book about the pursuit of excellence in medical education, construed above all in ethical terms.' I recommend Gunderman's book to department chairs, clerkship and residency program directors, and education professionals who are shaping the future of medical education. I do hope the Journal readership will take up this book and use it as Gunderman wishes.
