With health-related challenges changing healthcare delivery, the healthcare workforce needs to be transformed to meet the current and impending needs. Education in the health professions is the most powerful approach to reshaping the healthcare workforce, yet education changes can take decades to demonstrate effect. In this chapter, the authors briefly review the history of education of health professionals and discuss some recent trends and innovations that influence the current approach to training these professionals. Then they outline some future directions for practice, education, and research important for a time of change in healthcare delivery and education in the health professions. In particular, the authors emphasize the need for longitudinal tracking of educational outcomes so that the most effective training approaches can be defined and applied to training the optimal healthcare workforce.
