Your point is well taken. To a large extent the Flexner Report of the early XX Century continues to dominate medical education. And as witnessed in different developed countries, such as in the United States, more and more there are calls for sweeping reforms in medical education to make it more relevant for helping reduce social disparities, facilitate opportune access to quality of care in redesigned health systems, and improve health conditions by focusing not only on the biological determinants of disease but also on the social and environmental causes. So, as you clearly indicate, this is a challenge for developing and developed countries alike.
