In his recent review of Ludmerer's Time to Heal,1 Steven Schroeder, MD, concludes that Ludmerer's book "presents a powerful case that academic medicine's self-serving behavior has jeopardized its unique public trust."2 Remarkably, Schroeder, a distinguished medical educator and current president and chief executive officer of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, does not take exception to this harsh indictment. One suspects that he may concur.
