Topic

Looking Back to go Forward: Transforming Medical Education

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the current challenges we face with respect to human health.
  • Recognize the misalignment of current medical education and training with respect to current challenges
  • Identify the changes that will be required to transform the medical education to one that is focused on both human and planetary health.

Brief Description

Globally, we face increasingly challenging conditions with respect to human health. Non-communicable diseases of lifestyle dominate in the population, climate change poses a serious, immediate and global threat to human health, and we face the depletion of resources and ecosystems overshoot all while the global population continues to grow. Doctors prepared by the current medical education system are ill-equipped to face these challenges. Rather transformation of medical education is required so that physicians will be prepared to be leaders who help create health systems that can sustain human health while being focused on planetary health, that is also economically viable over the long term.
