Introduction

Much has changed in American medicine since the establishment of the first medical school in 1765 at the College of Philadelphia. At that time, physicians had very little professional training, and much of their training was unregulated—as was the treatment they provided to patients. As the medical profession became more established and education became more formal, the rules governing who could practice medicine also became more formal and restricted.

With the formation of the American Medical Association (AMA) in 1876, more medical schools required a four-year degree in order to qualify for medical practice, and the attempt to focus on quality became stronger. However, since many physicians were already from the “old school,” it was difficult to make the necessary changes that might restrict or diminish those educated earlier. Not until outside organizations began to exert pressure to enforce standards in education did improvements in training begin to be seen.

    • There are a lot of people already using APA 7 so this might be a helpful tool (even if you have not yet transitioned).  I keep a laminated copy right by my computer so I can check on anything that is confusing.  A few notes that are key points:1. APA 6 has the Running head: ALL CAPS on title page for header. APA 7 has only the page #.2. Neither version (ever) has the word Introduction as a heading. No matter what any directions may tell you, it is not correct APA in either version to use that word as a heading.3. For references of more than two authors, APA 7 uses only the first one and then et al., No period after et and no comma after the name of the first author.4.  APA 7 does not use the words Retrieved from or the Retrieved date in the references. Glance at the sample paper to see how this should look. Also, if it is a book, the place of publication is not needed.5.  Periods go on the outside of the parenthesis and not before them (Alles, 2021). 6. Don’t use first names or degrees in your references, and also don’t include any degrees such as PhD, MD, JD, MA, etc.Enough for now, but be sure to print out the sample and learn one new item a day
