Restructuring medical education to meet current and future health care needs.
The authors ask whether the duration, sequencing, and requirements of medical education are appropriate to meet current and future challenges to medical care. They conclude that a much more agile system that prepares physicians to practice in a changing environment is needed. This will require change at both the macro regulatory level (e.g., accreditation bodies and specialty boards) as well as the micro level of individual programs taking initiative in innovation.
