Table 2 Goals for modern medical education

From: Medical education and the healthcare system - why does the curriculum need to be reformed?

1. Standardize the learning outcomes and general competencies and provide options for customizing the learning process, providing opportunities for experiences in research, policy making, education, etc., reflecting the broad role played by physicians.
2. In practice, physicians must constantly integrate all aspects of their knowledge, skills and values. They should acquire skills to educate, advocate, innovate, investigate and manage teams.
3. Medical schools and teaching hospitals should support the engagement of all physicians-in-training in inquiry, discovery and systems innovation.
4. Development of professional values, actions, and aspirations should be the backbone of medical education.
