Keeping Up With Trends

A lot of medical students out there would work hard to pass their boards, and a big proponent of these tests is the knowledge and updates they take from their respective schools. Many schools still take the more traditional approach and practices when it comes to medical education. This situation has widely stunted the learning growth of students in the United States, given that many other countries have already slowly started to advance with the help of technology and science. Many traditional-style school still fear change, and this mindset may be the hindering factor to why medical education in the U.S. may not be that advanced.
