There have been major changes happening at medical schools across the United States as graduate schools try to catch up with the changing medical landscape, the Washington Post
reports. The schools are now trying to prepare students for a world where mainstream doctors adopt holistic or alternative techniques, where doctors' offices portray themselves as "medical homes" offering "patient-centered" care, where primary-care physicians are increasingly in demand, and, where the system of paying for healthcare is likely to undergo a major upheaval, the Post
reports. Catering to these needs, medical experts say, could help future doctors offer preventive care first, reactionary second.
