Download PDF

I would like to thank the College of Physicians for the honour and privilege to deliver the 9th College of Physicians Lecture on “Medical Education and Professional Training— Changing the Trajectory”. I do feel that it is important at this occasion to thank many of my teachers who have unselfishly taught and trained me and continually inspire me. My
students who continue to expose my gaps, and help me do better have remained an inspiration, particularly those who have outperformed me. My special thanks to those who have created the “milieu” for me to be exposed and involved in areas related to medical education stretching from ground to policy levels. I will give a glimpse overview of the
changing scenario of medical education and professional training. I will cover 7 areas in this lecture and take you through some personal perspectives as I conclude my talk.
