Background: The field of postgraduate medical education (PGME) is continuously evolving as a result of social demands and advancing educational insights. Change experts contend that organizational readiness for change (ORC) is a critical precursor for successful implementation of change initiatives. However, in PGME, assessing change readiness is rarely considered while it could be of great value for managing educational change such as curriculum change. Therefore, in a previous Delphi study the authors developed an instrument for assessing ORC in PGME: Specialty Training's Organizational Readiness for curriculum Change (STORC)...

A number of barriers exist for adoption of pharmacogenomics into practice. Physicians, pharmacists, and nurses report limited knowledge about pharmacogenomics and its use in patient care. Lack of pharmacogenomics education curricula as part of professional schools or postgraduate training programs has been reported as a potential cause. Understanding pharmacogenomics is further complicated by a complex and nonstandard lexicon, limited medication guidelines, rapidly changing evidence, and insufficient awareness of test availability and utility...

INTRODUCTION: As competency-based education has gained currency in postgraduate medical education, it is acknowledged that trainees, having individual learning curves, acquire the desired competencies at different paces. To accommodate their different learning needs, time-variable curricula have been introduced making training no longer time-bound. This paradigm has many consequences and will, predictably, impact the organization of teaching hospitals. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of time-variable postgraduate education on the organization of teaching hospital departments...

CONTEXT: Patients are increasingly being engaged in providing feedback and consultation to health care institutions, and in the training of health care professionals. Such involvement has the potential to disrupt traditional doctor-patient power dynamics in significant ways that have not been theorised in the medical literature. Critical theories can help us understand how power flows when patients are engaged in the training of medical students. METHODS: This paper applies postcolonial theory to the involvement of patients in the development and delivery of medical education...
