Transformative Education
for Health Professionals

Key policy issues

This section presents the main policy issues that face decision-makers in the five domains for interventions to transform and scale-up the education of health professionals identified by the Core Group, these being: education and training institutions, accreditation and regulation, governance and planning, financing and sustainability, and monitoring, implementation, and evaluation.

The policy recommendations do not cover all areas of health professional education and training . Only those seen as priority areas by both WHO and the Core Group were included. Furthermore, there are a number of areas where more research is needed even with regard to the five  main domains  and these are outlined in Section 5 Knowledge gaps and research agenda.
