Hidden curriculum shapes how med students learn end-of-life care

More intense care can translate into worse, and more expensive, care at the end of life. The nation's 23 top academic medical centers also vary quite a bit in what researchers say is the intensity of care they provide patients at the end of life, according to an analysis from the Dartmouth Atlas Project.
