Medical education a€” the art and science behind medical teaching and learning a€” has progressed remarkably. Teaching and learning have become more scientific and rigorous, curricula are based on sound pedagogical principles, and problem-based and other forms of active and self-directed learning have become the mainstream. We have progressed from the role of problem-identifier to that of solution-provider. This book provides a balanced overview of the qwhyq of medical education, emphasizing the need for change and adaptation, and the qhowq, by demonstrating the way concepts and theories of medical education can be of immediate benefit to the medical teacher. In this improved second edition, student assessment, curriculum, outcome-based education, clinical teaching, and problem-based learning receive more emphasis with the addition of new chapters, essential updates, and consolidation. The tone is more pragmatic, with implementable examples and incorporation of newer evidence and better practices. However, one thing has not changed: the book still targets medical teachers without a formal background in education. Contents: Historical Overview of Medical Education; Global and Regional Perspectives in Medical Education; Change Process and Role of Leadership; Learning Concepts and Philosophies; Curricular Design and Planning; Educational Outcomes; Teaching and Learning Methodology: General, Clinical, PBL; Assessment of Students; Program Evaluation; Research in Medical Education; Glossary and Further Resources.A sample of such an assessment form is shown at the end of this chapter. ... knowledge can still be assessed in the usual way by using various methods such as context-rich MCQs, modified essay questions, essays, and others. An objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) can be designed to test clinical skills.
