This enables physicians to see a broader range of patients. Academic practice, by contrast, is generally more subspecialized, and as a result, academic physicians frequently focus on a smaller range of clinical problems. Primary care specialties such as family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics are generally represented in greater proportion in the community context than the academic context. This is reflected in the fact that patients are more commonly referred from community physicians to academic physicians than the reverse.

If we are to continue to attract capable medical students and residents to academic careers, we need to address explicitly the benefits of an academic career. What are the advantages and disadvantages of a career in the academy? Community practice offers a number of enticements. One is compensation. In some specialties, community practitioners earn 50 to 100% more than their academic counterparts. Trainees feel this difference most acutely precisely when they are contemplating their choice of career.

Cognitive psychologists developed one of the most widely accepted models of how the memory functions. In one widely discussed model, the memory consists of three principal parts, the sensory registers, short-term memory, and long-term memory. To an educator, the sensory registers are important because learners cannot retain what they do not notice. Thus, educators need to make their material appealing to the senses. Short-term memory is important because learners may be able to retain facts in short-term memory long enough to reproduce them on a test, but not really retain them.
