International Comparisons

In order to assess what types of innovations in medical education are happening around the world, we explored the medical education system in several countries. Site visits and interviews with key stakeholders in the UK were completed in the spring, and US comparisons were completed in the fall. A supplementary site visit to Maastricht University was also conducted in the fall. (Please see full reports below).


Purpose
We were charged to undertake consultations in the UK, US and the Netherlands environment to generate:

  • An overview of the current landscape in British, American and Dutch medical education;
  • Current issues / trends that impact upon or should impact upon medical education;
  • How / if undergraduate medical school programs are engaging / responding to these societal shifts;
  • Examples of innovation in British, American and Dutch medical education.
