Abstract

In medical schools and residencies, the faculty in all settings and through all facets of the curriculum influence learners' skills, attitudes, and behaviors. Mentorship and role modeling are powerful forces in shaping a professional. To positively affect the number of students seeking to enter the generalist specialties, the faculty community will need reevaluation, expansion, and professional development. This paper discusses some of the hurdles for institutional leaders and offers pragmatic suggestions for beginning the process of retooling the faculty. A matrix is presented to describe the multifaceted faculty required for educating the generalist.
