Remodelling library education after medical eduation

At an ASIST student meeting we are talking about how we can better integrate library practice with research. The issue of library education being separated from the pracitce was also discussed.

One person raised the issue of having library education being modelled after medical education. Doctors who teach are situated in hospitals and their students have days that they walk around with their teachers and get to apply what they learn.

Why not have library educators situated in libraries, and have some teaching days where students are actually spending time doing work in the actual library?
