Imagine you are a medical apprentice in the 1800s. Envision your medical training during this era under the apprenticeship model. Jump to the 1960s and envision your training under the academic model. Finally, think of what your medical school training might look like today.
Of particular interest for today’s training are the many technology innovations for learning in medical schools, including augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robotic-assisted surgery, and minimally or noninvasive procedure technologies. Today’s training features remote patient monitoring (RPM) and telemedicine through a virtual model of care (VMC), as well as learning to use the human genome for more accurate diagnosing and patient-specific treatments.
Write a 3–4 page paper to analyze the scope of change in medical education from the 1800s to today, the apprenticeship and academic models, and the importance of understanding the history in order to help improve medical education in the future.
Do the following:

Refer to the Writing Support page on Campus for resources to help you as you write and revise your paper.
In The Changing Scope of Medical Education section of the assessment template, analyze the scope of the changes in medical education from the 1800s to today.
How widespread are the newer technologies impacting medical training?
Have there been mandated changes or have there been cultural changes that have impacted medical education?
In the Apprenticeship Model vs. Academic Model section of the assessment template, compare and contrast the apprenticeship and academic models of medical education in the 1800s, 1960s, 2000s, and today.
Describe the apprenticeship model and the academic model.
Compare and contrast the similarities and differences in their features.
Analyze how the models have evolved over time and the impact the evolution of these models has had on the quality of patient care.
In the Importance of Understanding History of Medicine section of the assessment template, explain the importance of understanding the history of medical education in order to help improve medical education in the future.
Write a conclusion to your paper in which you summarize the main themes you addressed.
