The field of medical education and training has undergone dramatic changes within the past few years, and continues to evolve.

Modernising Medical Careers, changes in the statutory role of the Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board, and the Good Doctors, Safer Patients report from Liam Donaldson, Chief Medical Officer, are just some of the factors affecting the way doctors are now learning.

In this book, Yvonne Carter and Neil Jackson, experienced medicaleducators of both undergraduates and postgraduates who have demonstrated a long standing commitment to multi-professional education and training, bring together a prestigious team of contributors with a wide variety of experience across diverse academic, service and lay backgrounds, to provide acomprehensive, up to date review of medical education and training. With the demands on young doctors increasing, along with higher patient expectations, the need for ongoing education and training within the medical profession has never been higher.

Themes covered include assessment, professionalism and medical regulation, educational standards, patients' expectations, Continuing ProfessionalDevelopment, leadership and management, the European Working Time Directive, Fitness to Practice, interprofessional learning, the development of the NHS workforce, equality and diversity, and ethical and legal issues.

Medical education needs to be a lifelong process, and this book integrates bothundergraduate and postgraduate issues throughout, to encourage continued learning. This book will help ensure that future generations of doctors are trained to meet the changing needs of our population.
