Medical Education

Central government has established tighter regulatory frameworks to control medical education and practice at all levels. This book provides critical thinking concerning the educational basis for these frameworks. It extends to medical education the concepts presented thirty years ago by Lawrence Stenhouse, and presents an alternative model – a curriculum for practice – in a way that provides a language for all those concerned with medical education to debate the issues in a more enlightened way.

Medical Education: Theory and Practice E-Book

Medical Education: Theory and Practice is a new text linking the theory and the practice for graduate students and educators who want to go beyond the basics. The scholarship of medical education is, above all, a ‘practice’, but one that has a strong theoretical foundation. Neither theory nor practice stand still, and both are grounded in research. The novelty of this book lies in its interweaving of practice, theory, innovation and research. The book starts with a theorised, contemporary overview of the field. Next, it explores the theoretical foundations of medical education in depth. The remainder of the book reviews a whole a range of educational contexts, processes and outcomes. Thi...

The Handbook of the Sociology of Medical Education provides a contemporary introduction to this classic area of sociology by examining the social origin and implications of the epistemological, organizational and demographic challenges facing medical education in the twenty-first century. Beginning with reflections on the historical and theoretical foundations of the sociology of medical education, the collection then focuses on current issues affecting medical students, the profession and the faculty, before exploring medical education in different national contexts. Leading sociologists analyze: the intersection of medical education and social structures such as gender, ethnicity and disability; the effect of changes in medical practice, such as the emergence of evidence-based medicine, on medical education; and the ongoing debates surrounding the form and content of medical curricula. By examining applied problems within a framework which draws from social theorists such as Pierre Bourdieu, this new collection suggests future directions for the sociological study of medical education and for medical education itself.

The Changing Face of Medical Education

The past 50 years - and even the past 20 years - have seen almost revolutionary change in medical education, which has emerged as a distinct discipline during that time. The curriculum to be covered, the most effective learning and teaching methods, and what kind of professional (and indeed person) medical education is intended to produce, how success can best be assessed and - not least - the make-up of students and teachers themselves have all changed enormously. This unique text draws together a wide variety of perspectives and focuses in particular on the experiences of one of the U.K.'s newer medical schools. It examines the key changes that have shaped the field, its practitioners and its students, presenting unique perspectives on both its history and on the current state of the art. This book is rewarding and informative reading for medical educationalists, academics, social scientists and researchers in medical history and education.
