Abstract: The practice of medicine by future physicians is going to be greatly influenced by knowledge obtained from biotechnology. For instance, the development of DNA-based, prenatal diagnoses for inherited genetic disease or the availability of cloned protein hormones or vaccines will require that physicians have a different basic science background than their predecessors. This will necessitate changes in how the basic sciences are taught in medical schools. Suggestions are offered regarding the teaching of biotechnology to medical students.
