Medical Education: Past, Present and Future : Handing on Learning Hardback
'Highly Commended - BMA Awards 2007 - "I would certainly recommend this book to all in Medical Education"Medical education, both for undergraduate and postgraduate students and for those training in their chosen specialty, is currently undergoing great change.
In Medical Education: Past, Present and Future, Sir Kenneth Calman puts this change in its proper historical context and also examines the current upheavals and their implications for the future. Dr Bill Bryson writes in his Foreword:"This is a thoroughly enthralling work by someone who knows more, and cares more, about medicine, society and the preparation of young minds than any other person I know.
This is a book to inspire and gladden the heart. It would be hard to imagine such an important subject in better hands."An ambitious but timely project made readable and specific by the use of a case-based approach - a book of this range and type has not been attempted since the early 20th centuryWritten by a known expert in the field and therefore individualistic - but with a real insider's attributes of being able to discriminate between what does and does not matter - the insider viewpoint - especially of someone so recently involved at the centre of political and educational debate The overall theme of "regulation" covers not just the professionals' viewpoint but also the public's - and therefore covers political influences on the educational and regulatory process
