  16. 16. The separation of the two disciplines has its roots in the late 19th century, when medical schools began to focus more on hospital-based care and scientific research and less on community-based care and prevention.The separation has continued partly because medical students have jam-packed curricula and insufficient medical faculty with public health expertise.
  17. 17. The Affordable Care Act promises a future in which preventive care and population health, rather than procedures, are rewarded,the gap between medicine and public health may be closing
  18. 18. 2007 Institute of Medicinereport recommended that all physiciansreceive basic training in public health.
  19. 19. Beginning next year, the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE), which is sponsored bythe National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME), will begin testing students on public health principles.Additional changes for all three parts of the exam will be phased in over the next two years.
