Abstract

In 1985 Julian Tudor Hart observed: ‘… our medical schools teach and our students learn better than ever before’,1yet he also noted that there was a ‘… crisis of structure’.

In response to that crisis he went on to make a case for ‘turning the world upside down’, arguing for a reversal in undergraduate medical education to see the preponderance of teaching time spent in the community rather than in hospital. The change he advocated did not occur; however, the discipline of academic general practice was recognised as playing a key role in the medical school curriculum and the education of medical students.
