Medical education is education related to the practice of being a medical practitioner, either the initial training to become a physician (i.e., medical school and internship), additional training thereafter (e.g., residency and fellowship), or Physician Assistant education.
Medical education and training varies considerably across the world. Various teaching methodologies have been utilised in medical education, which is an active area of educational research.
Famous quotes containing the words medical and/or education:
“They said Id never get you back again.
I tell you what youll never really know:
all the medical hypothesis
that explained my brain will never be as true as these
struck leaves letting go.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“Whether in the field of health, education or welfare, I have put my emphasis on preventive rather than curative programs and tried to influence our elaborate, costly and ill- co-ordinated welfare organizations in that direction. Unfortunately the momentum of social work is still directed toward compensating the victims of our society for its injustices rather than eliminating those injustices.”
—Agnes E. Meyer (18871970)
