This book is authored by a virtual "who's who" in medical education. The nidus seems to be Southern Illinois University School of Medicine where many of the authors reside. Other authors included were at one time or another on the faculty there. There are 36 authors listed of whom 4 appear to be surgeons. This book is divided into 4 major sections that deal with the history and evolution of medical school education, the development of this art and science, curricular change, and a section opining the challenges and changes that will be seen in the not too distant future.
