Envisioning the Master Adaptive Learner

Back to top

Physicians need to rapidly access and interpret continuously evolving information and to understand how the use of new data supports the delivery of the best patient care.

One of the aims of the consortium is to assist physicians in becoming master adaptive learners—expert, self-directed, self-regulated and lifelong workplace learners.

Preparing today's medical students for careers in the changing health care system requires more than clinical skills. Faculty must help medical students develop skills in adaptive learning, too.

We have no idea what medical systems will look like 10 years from now when today's students will enter the workforce, let alone when they've been in practice 20 years. By training them to be master adaptive learners, we are giving them the tools to adapt.

Fostering the Development of Master Adaptive Learners

Read this paper, in which researchers describe a conceptual literature-based model for a Master Adaptive Learner that provides a shared language to facilitate exploration and conversation about both successes and struggles during the learning process.

Mission Control: The Gamification of Medical Learning

Suraiya S. Rahman, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics at Keck School of Medicine, discusses the gamification of medical learning at the AMA's ChangeMedEd™ 2015 conference.

Watch her presentation to understand how massive multiplayer online role-playing games and thinking like a gamer can turn medical students into master adaptive learners.
