|As the pace of change in health care increases, medical schools face an ongoing quandary: Are we equipping our learners to practice in the health system they will face when they enter practice? Technology is rapidly evolving, giving physicians new approaches to treatment and access to new data. Governments are changing the playing field, moving towards value-based payments in the United States and preparing for a full system overhaul in South Africa based on National Health Insurance (NHI) plans. In South Africa this involves mixed capitation payments for primary care, including private general practitioners. The focus, especially with increasing chronic care, is not just comprehensively managing the patient across the desk but managing the population as a whole. This goes with a strong focus on prevention and community-oriented primary care. How do medical schools need to change to ensure tomorrow’s doctors are ready for tomorrow’s challenges?
