Recently AMA Wire published “9 challenges medical educators want to solve right now” which were the topics identified at a AMA event when participants were asked the question, “What does the medical school of the future look and feel like—and how do we get there?”
Identified challenges included, “New ways to make medical training more patient-centered” and “Strategies for increasing diversity in medical education.”
The diversity one made us wonder – what if diversity in medical education meant more than students with a variety of colors and creeds? What if “diversity” included rural? Rural students, rural training, rural cultural competency.
What are the rural medical education challenges you want to solve right now?
