Education and Learning

  • John Fry


Education is a continuum that starts at birth and finishes, incomplete, at death. Life and living are general educating processes. Medical education is a specific process of education that is added to the student’s life experience. It too has to be a continuum. Whilst it may be useful to subdivide medical education into undergraduate, graduate, vocational and continuing postgraduate phases, they should not be considered independently. Each contributes to the learning process, albeit with different goals and different educational techniques.
