Many problems exist within the contemporary medical education process in general and the osteopathic medical profession in particular. Part 2 of this series suggests that the single greatest impediment to solving these problems is an institutional infrastructure that is not congruent with the institution's functions, as defined in its mission statement. (This mission statement generally entails two primary goals: education and research.) Two major divisions within the core's infrastructure are suggested: medical education and medical research. By restructuring their infrastructure, colleges of osteopathic medicine can more effectively address and support their primary functions of education and research.
