Overview

This work is a key introduction to the most major medical educational innovation of the last half-century: problem-based learning combined with community oriented education. The book includes history, conceptual bases, case examples and an introduction to key persons and institutions. It documents the experiences, accomplishments and problems of a number of medical schools forging new pathways in medical education. Education for Tomorrow's Medicine Today clearly explains the need for innovation in medical education. With respect to standardized evaluation, particularly interesting results show the equivalence of new methods to existing approaches.

In the face of a worldwide decline in financial support for medical care two obvious options present: prevention of disease and prevention of birth; only the former is addressed here. The main topics are new techniques in physician training, community-oriented training, evaluation of innovative education, problem-based training, and faculty development. Annotation c.
