But I have faith that personalized medicine will sweep the hallowed halls of medicine. A friend of mine in the telecommunications world tells me that all revolutions start with people in their 20s. Medicine is no exception. Students entering medical school now, encouraged by the needs of their patients, will be the ones to make personalized medicine happen. They will catch the wave and, no doubt, put an end to template care too.
