Society expects today's physicians to be expert clinicians, effective communicators, resource managers and health care advocates, all rolled into one. This is changing both medical school curricula and the way medical students are selected. During a homecoming weekend at Queen's University, faculty brought medical alumni up to date on the selection process. "I remember writing a little not saying that I wanted to come into medicine and sending it off with my transcript, and that was it," noted Dr. Robert Madsley, the vice-dean. Today, the situation is much different.
