Hommage à Jean Dausset (2166 words)
Dans les années cinquante, un groupe de jeunes chefs de clinique, ou anciens chefs de clinique, emmenés par Jean Dausset, débat avec ardeur des évolutions qu'il leur paraît indispensable d'imprimer au tissu hospitalier, au statut des praticiens, à la formation des médecins et à la recherche médicale.
Jean Dausset et ses collègues dessinent en effet un profond chamboulement du paysage hospitalier, autour de deux axes : l'attribution aux hôpitaux d'une mission officielle de recherche, placée sur le même plan que celles de soins et d'enseignement ; la création d'un statut de médecins hospitalo-universitaires à temps plein.
Et je suis particulièrement heureux que Jean Dausset ait montré avec éclat qu'un médecin peut se lancer dans l'action administrative avec efficacité et porter une réforme dans un contexte difficile.
