The Art of Teaching Undergraduates

  • Yasser El Miedany


Rheumatic conditions are common in both hospital and community settings. However, this high incidence is not reflected in the coverage of rheumatic disorders in the undergraduate medical school curriculum. Current evidence suggests that there are a number of shortcomings in undergraduate rheumatology training, in terms of the content, how this is delivered and how it is assessed. Moreover, there seems to be considerable variation across medical schools worldwide. To tackle this challenge, there is a need to recognize and prioritize rheumatology teaching within the undergraduate curriculum, to incorporate rheumatology into the core components taught in the medical schools and to have an agreement about methods of delivery and assessment of musculoskeletal clinical skills as well as knowledge. This chapter will enlighten the readers about the current situation of undergraduate teaching, the science and art of teaching the undergraduates and the new concepts in this field. It aims to serve as a resource guide for students and experts alike and provide a review of new innovative strategies to improve musculoskeletal undergraduate teaching. The chapter will conclude with discussing what should be done regarding the future of undergraduate rheumatology teaching.
