Abstract

Clinical education is a major component of higher education programs for healthcare professionals in fields such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and social work. The increasing complexity of performance in these fields demands new approaches to clinical education and training. The reform of clinical education in colleges and universities must be driven first and foremost by innovative pedagogy (e.g., authentic tasks and case-based learning models) rather than advanced technologies alone (e.g., 3D immersive simulations and social networking tools). The overall transformation of clinical education and training would be best guided by a design research approach.
