• Pediatric education in the contemporary United States requires the cooperation of an educational team of both academic and practicing pediatricians. The latter have been handicapped in their appropriate function as teachers and role models by exposure to students in the wards and clinics of teaching hospitals, the natural habitats of academic pediatricians. Evidence is offered to indicate that practicing pediatricians are significantly more effective as teachers and role models when medical students are exposed to them in their own offices.
