IN READING the paper by Hunt et al,1 "Trends in Clinical Education of Medical Students: The Implications for Pediatrics," in this issue of the ARCHIVES, I was struck by the sophistication and creativity of the new paradigms that have emerged in undergraduate pediatric education over the past 20 years. The shift is welcome and refreshing and owes much to its championing by 2 particular pediatric institutions: the Ambulatory Pediatric Association (APA) and the ARCHIVES.
