Need of Medical Education in Europe?

Europe has around 450 medical and nursing schools, research institute and universities that produce about 70,000 medical and health graduates every year, accounting for a total of 2.5 million medical doctors that serves to a population of about 770 million people.

The emergence of new demographic, social, behavioural and epidemiological changes coupled with high public demands have revealed the mismatch between the competencies of most medical graduates and the current and future needs of the patients they mean to serve. Regarding this, there is not sufficient emphasis on the acquisition of research skills throughout medical undergraduate and specialist training.

There is a need for a strategic vision of the future for medical and nursing education. This analysis addresses four themes: the curriculum, new learning technologies, assessment, and professionalism in medical and nursing education. The limitations or obstacles in implementing a vision for medical and nursing education are likely not to be technical or pedagogical or even logistical, but are more likely to be the result of a lack of imagination by those concerned with planning medical education and their ability to bring about the necessary changes.

This market research analysis identifies the rise in number of medical and allied healthcare professionals as one of the primary growth factors for this industry. With the significant increase in the aging population, the coming years will witness an exponential increase in the need for medical and allied healthcare professionals such as medical doctors, nurses and physiotherapists. This will consequently result in increasing the need for training and educating students, in turn, driving the growth of the medical education market.

It is estimated that in terms of geographical regions, after North America, Europe will be the major revenue contributor to the Medical & Nursing Education industry throughout the next five years. The shift in focus of universities in the region from improving the educational content to upgrading learning processes and educational outcomes will be a major factor aiding market growth in this region. Institutions in the region are increasingly focusing on inter-professional education (IPE), where students from different teams work together as a part of collaborative learning practices, which will aid in team building and improving joint decision-making to serve patients better.

With this increasing growth of industry the dissemination of knowledge could occur only through international meetings and conferences. 6th International Conference on Medical and Nursing Education would address the recent advancements happening in this field with a series of key Note, Plenary sessions, Workshops, Symposiums and discussions represented by renowned speakers from more than 40 nations.
