If we are to believe what we read and what we hear, we must conclude that medical school faculties do not believe direction and leadership are necessary in academic medicine. In fact, they act as if they resent leadership and believe that medical schools should run on an every-man-for-himself basis. They seem to believe that medical schools are free-for-all institutions and not a team operation in any sense of the word.—John Russell1
