The author reflects on a report by Sir John Tooke which evaluated Great Britain's Modernizing Medical Careers program for the training of physicians. He suggests that the best the report can do is promote the reconciliation of doctor training disputes related to the training of foreign doctoral candidates. He argues that before any recommendations concerning the training of physicians are implemented they will have to be superior to those contained in Tooke's report.
