Hi all. Recently, "Dutch Doc" posted a thread called (CLICK ON LINK "On request: the Dutch system of med school", which you may reference as a backdrop to this thread. I think that such knowledge is valubale for readers--to have an "insiders view" of how "different" medical contexts and edu systems work, is simply valuable. Hence, if you are in a medical system other than the U.S.'s, and are in the process of learning or have quite well "learned the ropes" of it...inform us all, please! Because as mentioned above, there is simply a whole lot of value in such for both regular readers of SDN and those who "happen to come along"; there is a whole lot to learn, both personally, professionaly, and particularly in terms of pluralism, from the the knowledge of what I suppose we could call "comparative medical education systems."
