C 5.1-7 Medical education and the Bologna process
Name C 5.1-7 Medical education and the Bologna process
Description Author: Madalena Patrício, Ronald M Harden

Despite initial serious reservations about the application of the Bologna process to medical education, there has been a move, at least in some countries, towards a recognition of the benefits to be gained from greater transparency, a general equivalence of degrees across Europe, cooperation with regard to quality assurance, an emphasis on more flexible learning paths and lifelong learning, and the promotion of mobility. The aspect about which there has been most concern has been the twocycle model, although an AMEE-MEDINE survey has shown that this has been implemented in some medical schools. A clear need, however, has emerged for medical schools to be better informed about the Bologna process and for there to be a more open discussion about the benefits and strategies for implementation. To highlight the key issues and hopefully clarify some misunderstandings AMEE has produced a statement about medical education and the Bologna process. The Bologna process, it is hoped, can serve as a catalyst to assist medical education to respond to the challenges facing medicine today and as a vehicle to encourage reflection about the future of medical education in a global society.
