Even as the University of Virginia and other medical schools across the U.S. prepare to graduate a new wave of physicians, what will be these doctors’ roles and responsibilities in a health care system increasingly stressed by social and political pressures, cultural challenges, and financial shortfalls? And what will be—what should be—expected of physicians and the medical profession in years to come, in their practice, in communities, in policy circles, in the public square? In this Medical Center Hour, Dr. Christine Cassel, a longtime leader in medicine and medical education, offers her perspectives on what should be expected of physicians and other health professionals in coming years–in their practice, in their communities, in government and policy circles, and in the public square.
