Book series description

The changed doctor-patient relationship and increased access to (often false) information have made it necessary to reform the traditional bipolar (scientifically grounded and clinically skilled) medical education. Today, a physician is expected to be able to provide an individualized plan of care that reflects the physician’s knowledge of basic physiology, awareness of the best current evidence, skillful patient communication, and shared decision-making.

In this series, we invite submissions that, on the one hand, address the field of global health education. This can include any topic that focuses on health education, prevention, global health, health risk behaviours and habits, etc. On the other hand, we welcome papers that deal with the moral and psychological aspects of professional identity in medical education (such as honesty, integrity, kindness, empathy, communication, commitment, care ethics, types of care, etc.) focusing on the generational characteristics of students (higher score on assertiveness, self-liking, narcissistic traits, high expectations, anxiety and poor mental health, lower self-reliance, perfectionism, burnout). Thirdly, we invite papers exploring pedagogical methods that allow the effective development of the skills mentioned above (agile teaching, hybrid teaching, interactive learning innovations, self-regulated learning, team-based learning, problem-based learning, etc.).
