The Turbulent Years
This chapter describes Vernon Lippard's concern about medical education, which he expressed as he prepared to step aside in 1967 after fifteen years as dean of the medical school. The ready availability of research funds and the ensuing dependence on them had diverted faculty attention from teaching. Increasing interest in social-action projects, while important, threatened to divert attention even further from educational goals. What Lippard could not realize at the time was that the medical students themselves would divert their attention from educational pursuits to become heavily involved in community social-action projects and in the governance of the medical school. The search committee for the new dean wrote letters to various individuals in 1966 asking general questions about the selection of a dean.
