The global independent Commission on the Education of Health Professionals for the 21st Century recently published an evidence-based argument for transformation in the education of health professionals. An important barriert o achieving health is the application of knowledge. Inmost systems, health professionals are the mediators of knowledge between those who generate it (researchers)and those who need it (patients and communities). As such,the commission concluded that all health professionals in all countries should be educated to mobilize knowledge and to engage in critical reasoning and ethical conduct so that they are competent to participate in patient and population centered health systems as members of locally-responsive and globally-connected teams.
