Identities, Powers and Locations: What Does the Future Hold for Medical Education?
In the final two chapters, we summarize our argument for a new approach to medical education and move beyond our concerns with pedagogy to engage with policy. In setting out what the future may hold for medical education, we describe in the following chapter the ground—provided by academies—upon which pedagogy and policy can engage in creative dialogue. We argue that medical education can and should be constructed differently than it is at present. Certain critical changes are already in the air, but we believe that more can be done to shape a responsive and socially responsible medical education for the future, while unproductive habits from the past persist and need to be challenged.
