What future forces will drive the deepest and broadest impact on academic medicine? This report from the Future of Academic Medicine Series examines how key health care trends and five external future forces could lead to major cultural, social, and technological changes over the next ten years.
Developed for the AAMC by the Institute for the Future, an independent, nonprofit strategic research group, this custom forecast report describes these five future forces, along with real-life examples that are early indicators of change: on-demand learning, flipped clinics, networked discovery, high-resolution health, and rapid prototyping cycles.
This thought-provoking report suggests potential implications of the five future forces on academic health systems, and provides questions for academic medicine leaders to consider, including:
- How will on-demand learning transform medical education?
- How might the flipped clinic model transform the academic health system and clinical practice?
- How will medical institutions reshape cultural expectations, adapt research processes, and change reward structures to reflect the openness and reciprocity necessary for networked discovery?
- How can academic health systems accelerate cultures of sharing and learning from failure, which is central to the success of adopting rapid prototyping cycles?
Three “Artifacts from the Future” give a glimpse of what daily life may be like a decade from now for individuals in medical education, research, and patient care.
