Presented by Dr. Lawrence Nazarrian:

This presentation is based on the observations and opinions of a number of full-time medical educators and will include discussion of

  • ·      Changes in methods of teaching medical students and residents since retired physicians were in practice (lectures, problem-based learning, “programmed patients”). What is new and what is the same.
  • ·      The effects of technology on both medical care and medical education.
  • ·      The constantly expanding body of medical knowledge.
  • ·      Evolution of working conditions and attitudes.
  • ·      Exposure of medical students to clinical settings.

Dr. Nazarian received a B.S. degree from Yale College and an M.D. degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry.  After pediatric residency at Strong Memorial Hospital and Yale-New Haven Hospital, he served two years as a U.S. Army medical officer, then practiced general pediatrics for 35 years at the Panorama Pediatric Group in Rochester.  He was on the Editorial Board of Pediatrics in Review for 28 years, the last 8 as Editor-in-Chief.
