Dr. Victor Dzau, president of the National Academy of Medicine, questions whether we are truly providing the “health educators of the future”. He describes some of the societal and technological changes occurring in global health that demand new approaches to health care delivery around the world. Arguing that health education should prepare a workforce in terms of both competence and capacity, he examines how governments, academic institutions, regulatory and professional bodies can work together to ensure medical training will evolve in parallel with the changing landscape and develop successful models of education for the future.
