1910: The Flexner Report

The Flexner Report is a book-length study of medical education in the United States and Canada, written by Abraham Flexner and published in 1910 under the aegis of the Carnegie Foundation.



The AMA (American Medical Association) lobbies congress to ‘strengthen’ licensure and allow AMA offices to oversee who may or may not become a doctor. Women and African-Americans were limited in the field. The AMA is granted sole governorship, and immediately begins closing and consolidating medical schools, limiting supply.
