Abstract

100 years ago, a series of studies about the education of health professionals sparked groundbreaking reforms. The challenges of the 21st century demand a new redesign of professional health education. The Commission on Education of Health Professionals for the 21st Century came together to develop a shared vision and a common strategy for postsecondary education in medicine, nursing, and public health. The Commission provides a vision that calls for a new era of professional education that advances transformative learning and harnesses the power of interdependence in education. Just as reforms in the early 20th century were advanced by the germ theory and the establishment of the modern medical sciences, so too the Commission believes that the future will be shaped by adaptation of competencies to specific contexts drawing on the power of global flows of information and knowledge. Undertaking of this vision requires a series of instructional and institutional reforms, which are guided by the two expected outcomes, transformative learning and interdependence in education. On the basis of these core notions, the Commission offers 10 specific recommendations. The implementation of these recommendations require a series of enabling actions, including the mobilization of leadership, the enhancement of investments in health education, the alignment of the accreditation processes, and the strengthening of global learning. These recommendations also demand the support of a global movement engaging all stakeholders as part of a concerted effort to strengthen health systems.
