a: doctor training ~
b: military


"Medicine has a very strong sense of tradition. It is a hierarchical structure and is deeply committed to the preservation of standards. I found it to be very much like the military. The "father" of the American medical training system, William Stewart Halsted was known to work exhaustively and expect the same of his trainees - men like Cushing and Dandy."

A pretty good discussion.
