Medical education is education related to the practise of medicine, including initial training to become a physician and subsequent training. Medical education and training differ greatly around the world. In medical education, which is an active area of educational research, various teaching methodologies have been used.

Medical education is also the subject-didactic academic field in which medical doctors are educated at all levels, including entry-level, post-graduate, and continuing medical education. Before progressing in stages of medical education, specific requirements such as entrustable professional activities must be met.

Techniques of medical education

Medical education employs pedagogical theories that are tailored to the context of medical education. Medical education has been a pioneer in the field of evidence-based education, developing evidence syntheses such as the Best Evidence Medical Education collection, which was formed in 1999 with the goal of “moving from opinion-based education to evidence-based education.” Common evidence-based techniques for assessing clinical skills include the Objective structured clinical examination and reliable checklist-based assessments for determining the development of soft skills such as professionalism. However, ineffective instructional methods, such as matching teaching to learning styles and Edgar Dales’ ‘Cone of Learning,’ persist in medical education.

Is the art of medical education simply ensuring that students have sufficient up-to-date medical knowledge and clinical experience? It is much more than that. The art of medical education is about developing a teaching programme that will serve the community of the future. The programme is the result of a thorough assessment of societal needs and has the potential to influence the properties of future care. New care professionals trained in the programme will play an important role in resolving complex problems in health-care systems. The art of medical education is about challenging traditional notions of how to deal with these health-care systems. This change will elicit resentment and opposition. Effective change management is required to resist cyber-attacks.

Complex problems in medical education

The discussion of problems in health-care systems and the formulation of goals is a difficult task. The delivery of health care can be approached from a variety of scientific perspectives. Several countries’ health-care systems are a financial burden. On the other hand, preventing or quickly addressing labourers’ health-care issues is economically advantageous. Medical personnel in health-care systems tend to form professional societies that protect doctors’ and other care providers’ autonomy. Medicine’s professional culture is one of scientific advancement and progress in individual treatment. Could we make professional autonomy beneficial to some of the governance objectives? Patients’ representatives and other potentially important discussants should be included in the process of solving complex problems and describing goals for the future.

When the goals for health system governance are clear, the next step is to develop a strategy for using medical education. It is possible to have brilliant ideas, but making them a reality is nearly impossible. Change management is the science of making ideas a reality. This science will assist you in prioritising goals, identifying which players are important to deal with, which societal movements or hypes you can use to smooth the path, and which factors may enhance or bring about the process’s failure.
