In response to historical criticism, evolving accreditation standards, and recent reports on curricula, medical educators and medical schools have been eagerly pursuing integration as a goal of curricular reform. The general education literature broadly considers integration to be the deliberate unification of separate areas of knowledge, and it provides support for the concept that integration better meets the needs of adult learners in professional education. The use of integration as a curric...

Argument : Medical identity is about the ideals and moral positions that physicians take when justifying themselves. Medical identity is the study of the sociocultural paragons that conceptually underlie the phenomenology of physician’s coming to take themselves as autonomous social agents. The paper relies on Hegel’s Phenomenology of S...

Educators and professionals recognize the importance for inclusion of statistics in contemporary medical education programs and advocate its consideration for curricular integration. Given medical students’ perceptions about statistics, educators must explore pedagogical strategies that foster student engagement, ensure relevance of content, improve motivation and self-efficacy, and, ultimately, facilitate long-term retention of content knowledge. Games, with and without competitive elements, ha...

In its various forms and across its different sectors (i.e. primary, secondary, tertiary), the project of education is essentially about the provision of experiences from which students are intended to learn particular kinds of outcomes (i.e. knowledge). These outcomes can be focused on specific content, or on processes aiming to achieve changes in students participating in them. That is, an intentional process of providing experiences to secure particular outcomes. Therefore, alignments amongst...

We have previously proposed that by identifying a set of Educationally Sensitive Patient Outcomes (ESPOs), medical education outcomes research becomes more feasible and likely to provide meaningful guidance for medical education policy and practice. ESPOs are proximal outcomes that are sensitive to provider education, measurable, and linked to more distal health outcomes. Our previous model included Patient Activation and Clinical Microsystem Activation as ESPOs. In this paper, we discuss how He...

Although faculty and learners can often identify needed changes in the clinical setting, many educators are not sure how to teach the improvement principles and methods needed to achieve and sustain those changes. Defining and Developing Competency in QI Five developmental levels apply to physici...

Abstract Background The learning style preferences of general surgery residents have been previously reported; there is evidence that residents who prefer read/write learning styles perform better on the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE). However, little is known regarding the learning style preferences of applicants to general surgery residency and their impact on educational outcomes. In this study, the preferred learning styles of surgical residency applicants were de...
