Abstract

Cross-professional education in law and medicine will remain a relatively rare phenomenon in the United States. Without the development of institutionalized career lines and the acceptance of cross-disciplinary approaches to problem solving, M.D.-J.D.s must negotiate their jobs and job descriptions within an occupational structure that rewards disciplinary efforts. The marginal status of the interprofessional specialist persists in the decade of the 1980s.
