Abstract

The Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in Chicago recently affiliated with a teaching hospital, the Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and used this alliance as a catalyst to effect a change in the clinical curriculum. The affiliation set up a joint venture to operate two clinics, one on Scholl College's traditional campus and one at the teaching hospital. At the hospital site, Scholl College students rotate through clinical externships in areas such as internal medicine, emergency medicine, and podiatric elective; podiatric and general medical residents assist in the tutelage of the students. At the Scholl College campus, beginning clinical students learn basic skills in a teaching clinic, then refine and further their skills in a comprehensive clinic under the guidance of faculty members. The faculty and administration at Scholl College have embraced the concept of mainstream medical education, and are striving to prepare podiatric physicians to practice 21st century medicine.
