Putting students at the center: moving beyond time-variable one-size-fits-all medical education to true individualization.

Adv Med Educ Pract 2019 28;10:109-112. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Pediatrics, University of Iowa Health Care, Roy J. & Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, IA 52242-1101, USA.

Medical education has undergone a wave of creative innovation over the last decade, with new curricular structures, pedagogy, content, and team-based approaches. Augmenting these changes, integration of clinical and scientific principles increasingly occurs across all years of training. Given success in innovation and integration, as well as recent interest and national pilots in time-variable (competency-based) education, we propose the next important step in medical education evolution is individualization.

Adv Med Educ Pract 2018 2;9:777-790. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Global Medical Affairs, Asia-Pacific Region, Pfizer Australia, West Ryde, NSW, Australia.

The role of pharmaceutical physicians who are the experts working in pharmaceutical companies has progressed over the last few decades, from supervising research and development (R&D) studies and/or providing support to marketing teams to serving an independent critical function. In this review, we focus on pharmaceutical physicians serving medical affairs functions in the pharmaceutical industry. Historically, members of the medical affairs team mainly provided a bridge between commercial teams and the R&D sector and between the organization and external stakeholders. Read More

Modeling integration: co-teaching basic and clinical sciences medicine in the classroom.

Adv Med Educ Pract 2018 2;9:739-751. Epub 2018 Oct 2.

Department of Science Education, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Hempstead, NY, USA,

Purpose: Calls for revision in undergraduate medical education frequently cite the importance of integrating basic and clinical sciences and the use of active pedagogies. One under-appreciated approach to accomplishing both is interactive co-teaching, defined as two instructors with complementary expertise engaging students and each other instead of lecturing. This study sought to determine if interactive co-teaching helped students integrate and learn basic and clinical sciences, as well as to explore potential advantages and barriers to co-teaching.
