LEE, Richard V. The broken branch: Darwin's evolutionary tree and the progress of Medicine, the evolution of specialism and generalism. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2013, vol.141, n.2, pp.220-226. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872013000200012.

The landscape of medical practice and health care has been transformed by specialization over the past Century. There has been an extraordinary acceleration in the proliferation of specialty practice, coincident with rapid growth in technological devices and their clinical applications during the past fifty years. Medicine and medical care are evolving rapidly, a process that has similarities to biologic evolution. Medical educators, policy makers, and practitioners might find a Darwinian overview of medicine and health care of interest.

Palavras-chave : Cultural evolution; Clinical Medicine; Darwin; General practice; Specialization.
