An iventory of the knowledge and skills appropriate for the instruction of medical students in the disciplines of disease prevention and health promotion was developed by a steering committee of medical practitioners and teachers, with the input of over 70 colleagues. The inventory, which is intended as a guide for curriculum planners, defines the fundamentals of subject areas appropriate for the general education of all physicians, including the skills and knowledge related to delivery of personal disease prevention/health promotion services, quantitative methods, health services organization and delivery, and community dimensions of medical practice, as well as attitudes and philosophy.
