Medical educators: The new generalists identifying the core traditions of the profession to create the next generation of doctors

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialResearch

Abstract

[Extract]
This September marked 25 years since I successfully passed my MBBS finals and graduated from the University of Sydney. I am now well into the second half of a career that has allowed me the privilege and opportunity to work in the United Kingdom, the United States (US), and 4 different states in Australia across a range of hospitals, from tertiary to rural. In addition, I have taught at 6 different medical schools. Throughout my career, medicine has progressed and changed at an ever-increasing rate. This issue of The Ochsner Journal, with its focus on clinical education, provides a worthwhile opportunity to consider the diverse range of topics in which educators can demonstrate scholarship in the field of medical education. Medical educators face the timeless challenge of developing a new generation of doctors amid the often competing interests of healthcare in the developed world.
