Medical Education in Europe: A Report to the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching (Paperback)
"...only by effective legislation can the general public be adequately protected from exploitation by an army of ill-trained doctors, quacks, and charlatans."
-Henry S. Pritchett, Introduction to Medical Education in Europe (1912)
Medical Education in Europe (1912) by Abraham Flexner presents further research by the author following his landmark study of medical education in the US and Canada in The Flexner Report (1910), also available from Cosimo Reports. The report contains Flexner's insightful assessment of medical institutions in England, Scotland, the German Empire, Austria, and France. Flexner's call for more rigid standards heavily influenced the European medical community.
