Having said that, this is a good time to remember the strong and synergistic association that has existed over the years between medical education and indigent medical care. In fact, it is safe to say that throughout most of the history of modern medicine, the one could not have existed without the other. Each has greatly benefited from the presence of the other.
We can hope that there will be continued public support as the foundation continues its efforts to facilitate the clinical association of those in need of medical care and aspiring health-care students, to the advantage of both.
