6 FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS zDelimitation of the European Region zDiversity of medical education and health care in the Region zThe concept of standards in medical education (BME; PME; CPD) zThe use of standards for quality improvement/accreditation/recognition zRelation to the Bologna Process zRelation to the EU Medical Directive (Directive 2005/36/EC) WFME October 2006

7 DELIMITATION OF THE EUROPEAN REGION zEuropean Union (EU)25 countries zEuropean Economic Area (EEA) (EU + EFTA) 29 countries zBologna Process Area45 countries zCouncil of Europe 46 countries zWHO European Region52 countries zAll Europe54 countries WFME October 2006

9 MAIN DIVERSITIES OF BASIC MEDICAL EDUCATION IN EUROPE zPublic or private schools zDuration of curriculum: 4 ½ -7 years z+/- specialisation (ex.: science-track; paediatric track) zCurricular models zClinical training zResearch attainment zPre-registration training: 0-24 months before licensure WFME October 2006

10 CONCEPT OF STANDARDS zSet of rules to be followed strictly zFlexible guidelines WFME October 2006

11 WFME TRILOGY OF GLOBAL STANDARDS A foundation for accreditation

12 WFME GLOBAL STANDARDS: TWO LEVELS OF ATTAINMENT z Basic Standards or Minimum Requirements (musts) Accreditation foundation to be met from the outset zStandards for Quality Development (shoulds) Reform purposes in accordance with international consensus about best practice WFME October 2006

13 WFME GLOBAL STANDARDS: ORIENTATION AND COVERAGE Institutional/Educational Programme Level zInstitutional structure and organisation zCurriculum/content/process zLearning environment zOutcome zManagement WFME October 2006

14 2.1 CURRICULUM MODELS AND INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS Basic standard: The medical school must define the curriculum models and instructional methods employed. Quality development: The curriculum and instructional methods should ensure the students have responsibility for their learning process and should prepare them for lifelong, self-directed learning. Annotations: · Curriculum models would include discipline, system, problem and community based models etc. · Instructional methods encompass teaching and learning methods · The curriculum and instructional methods should be based on sound learning principles and should foster the ability to participate in the scientific development of medicine as professionals and future colleagues. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME

15 European Standards should include: structure of the curriculum must comply with the EU Directive 2005/36/EC medical school must be defined and accredited as university, part of it, or institution of equivalent level Area 1.1 Area 2.1

16 Educational goals of the Bologna Declaration - system essentially based on the two cycles, bachelor and master - establishment of a system of credits such as ECTS - promotion of mobility - cooperation in quality assurance

17 Model of the curriculum must be clearly defined in relation to the 2 cycle system Area 1.1 European Standards should include Organisation of the curriculum should be based on estimated students workload as expressed in ECTS credit points. Area 2.6

18 School must implement and use ECTS both for structuring the curriculum and for educational exchange. Schedule of courses and requirements should be flexible enough to allow students exchange European Standards should include Area 2.6 Credit accumulation system should be implemented Annotations 6.6.

19 The school must define its own policy regarding internal quality assurance and improvement European Standards should include Area 9 The school should seek possibility to confirm quality of its education by external evaluation and accreditation

20 competencies should be described taking into account the European Framework of Qualifications and the Dublin Descriptors. Area 1.1 European Standards should include

21 RATIONALE FOR EUROPEAN STANDARDS? zIs the spectrum of diversity different from other regions? zWould Sub-regional standards be of any value? zIs a common European accreditation system feasible? zEurope in the context of globalisation WFME October 2006

22 PRELIMINARY (PROVOCATIVE?) CONCLUSIONS zWFME Global Standards could be used directly as a basis for formulation of National Standards zAn intermediary between global and national standards is probably not needed zSome additional recommendations might be of value as a basis for formulation of National Standards yDivision line between basic and quality development standards could be changed y Adaptation (Europeanisation) of annotations in the standards document to the European context WFME October 2006
