The changing context of undergraduate medical education.
It has long been recognised that intensive efforts are needed to reform medical education in order to meet the future needs of populations worldwide.
Pressure for changes to the organisation, content and delivery of both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education has greatly increased in the last two decades.
The experience of innovative medical schools, the emergence of learner-centred teaching methods and the implications of healthcare reforms in North America and Britain are major factors influencing calls for change.
The pace of change has accelerated to such an extent in recent years that progress towards widespread reform appears to be more attainable than ever before.
This article provides an overview of the changing context of health-care, some patterns of existing medical education and some strategies for change.
