Med schools: Four that flunk

  1. Special Report:

    A small number of medical schools in the United States and abroad graduate doctors who are disciplined at about 10 times the rate of those from the best schools.

    Several years ago I saw an expose' on mexican medical schools. It was on 60 minutes or some show like that. They had hidden cameras and even found the lectures were being taught in spanish. The unfortunate thing was that many of the american students didn't speak spanish. I think I've met a few drs who must have graduated from these programs!!!!!!

    Wow. I'm surprised about Howard though. It used to have such a good reputation.
