Charting a Rational Course for the Future of Medical Education
Time: 12 pm - 1 pm
Location: LR 5 Scaife Hall
About This Session
Is current practice in medical education rational? What do the structures and processes of medical education reveal about medical educators’ underlying assumptions and beliefs? Dr. Kanter will explore the rationality of current practice in medical education by examining the discordance between beliefs and actions in selected areas. He will discuss forces that threaten medical educators’ ability to address challenges in a rational way. This critique will help locate new opportunities for research in medical education.
