The history of medical education is characterized by a series of calls for reform - some such as the Flexner report led to significant change.  Many more, however, collect dust on the shelf. In the current era we once again see a plethora of calls for reform. Will they lead to substantial changes in medical education? This talk examines factors associated with change and the lack thereof in curriculum reform. We will explore current calls for renewal and positions in the context of larger socio-professional developments that will powerfully affect the future of medical education.
