Education has been described as the process of changing the behavior patterns of people. Medical education has been described as the process of changing laymen into physicians. To this end, it is important to evolve a continuum of programs, beginning with premedical curricula and extending through medical school, graduate training, and continuing education. Regardless of where one wishes to place emphasis in this continuum, the basic components of the educational process are the same. One has a plan by which a student is to change, a variety of methods by which one hopes to implement activities to facilitate such change, and plans for evaluating the change which occurs.
