The current duration of medical education may have met the needs of earlier times.

Currently, with country variations, it is spread over 16 years after high school: a 4-year premedical, 4-year medical, 4-year residency, 4-year specialization.

In the presence of technology-based education delivery, we need to cut the length of medical education to at least half.

We will aim to feature best practices from around the world in this area. If you know any medical school which has experimented with reducing the duration, send us their case study and we will publish it here.
