In the Editorial entitled “Containing Multitudes: Medical Education 2013” published in the December 4, 2013, issue of JAMA (2013;310:2259-2261. doi:10.1001/jama.2013.283429), one paragraph contained incorrect wording. The first sentence of the fifth paragraph should have begun “In a study of internal medicine and nurse practitioner trainees, Curtis and colleagues2 used a randomized trial.…” Halfway down the same paragraph, the word “students” should be replaced with “trainees”: “Although the authors previously reported evidence using standardized patients supporting that these trainees had gained the desired skills for end-of-life communications.…” This article was corrected online.
