SD may condense medical school for some

USA Today, February 14, 2013
South Dakota educators might consider shortening medical school to three years instead of four for students pursuing careers as family doctors. The change would be the latest effort of the Sanford-USD School of Medicine to move more physicians into cities and rural areas across the state. It would concern only those in family medicine and not others on specialty tracks such as surgery, which would remain four-year programs.
