Abstract

Healthcare related education is a life-long process and the continuum extends from undergraduate to postgraduate and continuing professional education. With the time span stretching so long, it becomes inevitable that there will be evolutionary changes, progress and development in many aspects of the education. Healthcare related education evolution is based on changes in thinking, thought leadership and best evidence of the current times. It is complex and encompasses a multitude of subjects, didactic knowledge and practical skills, which all need to be integrated into a wholesome package for understanding (cognitive and procedural). It is optimal for the learners to be able to analyse, integrate and apply appropriately.

 

This paper focuses on 10 essential elements which will feature prominently in the area of medical/ healthcare education during the next decade. It also discusses how to integrate them into the life of healthcare personnel to ensure their education is versatile, up to date, resilient and represents the best strategy to educate minds.
