In the second edition of his Achieving Excellence in Medical Education, author Richard Gunderman tells readers that the purpose of the new edition is to serve as the catalyst for reflection on excellence in medical education. What do we need to attend to to make the most of the opportunities before us—as both educators and learners?” At first, the second edition seems little changed from the first. The bibliography and index included with the first edition are not included with the second—but apart from that, the titles of the 10 chapters are the same; indeed, at least the first few pages of each chapter (available online from the publisher), except for those of chapter 5, are also the same.
