Question special

Although we have spent a significant portion of this discussion talking about the pedagogical changes in medical education, I’m also interested in hearing our experts’ views on broader changes occurring within medical education. There are frequently calls for medical students to gain education in leadership, management, quality improvement, policy and other fields that have not traditionally been a part of the medical curriculum.

I’m interested in hearing our experts views on whether these areas deserve more attention in medical school and how they might fit into this discussion about more active learning methods? If we add additional elements to the medical school curriculum, what are we replacing and how should we think about these trade-offs?
