Faculty of Medicine, Department of Educational Development and Evaluation, University of Sydney, NSW.


The information age, combining rapidly developing information technology and massive growth in biomedical and clinical data, is placing special demands on healthcare workers. Further, radical changes in access to information in our society are affecting the doctor-patient relationship. These changes necessitate a new approach to primary and continuing medical education. A number of imperatives for medical education are identified and some practical changes to a medical curriculum are described.
