Profesional Development in Health Sciences


Since its foundation in 1997 and within its area of influence, the international journal Educación Médica/Medical Education had the willingness to contribute to transformation and innovation in medical education.

In the current year, the journal started a new direction since the Medical Education Private Foundation become its new editor. In this new period, to favour transformation and innovation will still be the main objectives of this publication. We never doubted that the ethics of Health Science professionals led them to be a paradigm of the professional in constant training throughout their life. At this moment, in which our society debates the professional values, it is worthy to state explicitly that we firmly believe in them. Current modernization processes lead us to be sensitive to the values of professionalism in general, and particularly to the development and maintenance of professional competence, which in our area is the continuum of the learning process: Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Continuous Professional Development (CPD/DPC). Therefore from the current issue on, the journal’s header will include the title of this editorial: Professional Development in Health Sciences.

Following this line of thought, the Barcelona Medical Society (Col·legi Oficial de Metges de Barcelona, COMB) recently joined the Medical Education Foundation as a new institutional partner. From this editorial, we are pleased to welcome both, the new patron and its representative. The presence in the Foundation board of a solid and prestigious professional corporation as the COMB will provide, above all, the voice of the values of medical profession.
