Education plays an important role to prepare the students and the citizens of a nation and helps them to keep up with the new trends, skills, and market. So education models keep on developing and evolving and the different industries that apply these models are ever ready to improve their learning and training practices. As new healthcare models continue to emerge and grow in each part of the globe, the elements that are becoming the most desired across the field of healthcare facilities and institutions are Social-emotional learning (SEL), ‘soft skills’, and interpersonal communication among the patients, doctors, and pharmacists. Health literacy functions as a signatory element to the role that education performs in new experience in healthcare. This provides patients with a stronger foundation for learning and understanding about their health and also helping healthcare professionals to provide health and medical knowledge in a way that is informative and understandable.
In order to fulfill the current needs of the society, which still stands as education’s main objective, the learning processes of physicians, their boundaries of understanding their patients, scientific knowledge, psychological aspects are all changing and getting advance day-by-day. A new common curriculum has been introduced that has a comprehensive healthcare model and it includes biological, psychological, social, and cultural (historical) aspects of medicine, with opportunities for students to acquire leadership, teamwork, and communication skills in order to introduce improvements into the healthcare systems where they work. As globalization still continues to grow, the concept of introducing policies for promoting global health has taken speed, a number of medical schools have accepted the challenge of changing their curricula to prepare doctors to respond to current and future developments in population health and are slowly implementing them.
Medical schools across the country are redesigning their education programs to help students benefit from new data analytics tools, team-based care models and quality management strategies that are proven to maximize performance and increase care efficiency. The procurement of modern scientific knowledge during medical schools became less important — not because this knowledge is not rapidly developing or critical to better care, but because it is now made available via the Internet, reference materials and decision support tools specific to the disease. The main goals of the education’s role in influencing new healthcare models are:
- Encouraging High-Quality, Value-Based Care
- Enhancing Communication and Teamwork
- Creating Earlier and More Meaningful Interactions with Patients
However, adding new coursework and educational tools requires a lot of time and money. Many of the schools described here won $1 million through the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education program to support their efforts, but the total costs exceed grant amounts. Some of that investment is tied to faculty development, another critical element of education reform.
Now the initiatives to create clinical education are building new skills and expertise and overcoming hurdles to implementation which will provide health professional students advanced training in outpatient and major focus on proper health care of the population.
