The Challenges of Physician Training - An International Perspective

University hospitals are challenged with providing patient care, delivering education of medical students and physicians as well as performing research. Hence, the goals of medical universities are in a perpetual state of unrest. New objectives have to be addressed, curricula adjusted and fiscal needs achieved.

In this seminar for medical students in their final years, physicians in training and faculty members, we will review and discuss postgraduate physician training in different parts of the world. We will review its origin in Germany and subsequently highlight how medical education programs formed in the United States, with a particular focus on the curriculum of Yale University. We will extend this by adding perspectives from different countries, namely the United Kingdom, Netherlands and Brazil. In addition, we will highlight how recent developments in patient care is impacting on training of young physicians.

A particular focus will be the challenge to combine excellent training in clinical medicine with competitive research. Two invited lectures will be given by visiting professor Asghar Rastegar, M.D. Dr. Rastegar is professor of internal medicine, former director of medical graduate education and associate chairman of academic affairs at Yale University. He is the current directorof the Yale Global Health Program.

We envision a vivid discussion among guests and speakers with the goal of learning from each other. This will enable us to better understand the challenges medical schools and their teaching hospitals are facing across the world. We hope this will lead to an active and ongoing dialog on this important topic among our faculty and trainees.
