Abstract

The need to improve the health of individuals and populations by providing high-quality health care has become a priority and has led to the implementation of various quality indicators to measure performance and outcomes. However, significant disparities exist in the health care delivery and outcomes among individuals that can only intensify, considering the future projections for an aging and increasingly diverse population. This article provides the authors’ perspectives on how these issues can be addressed and overcome by redesigning medical education so the future generations of physicians have the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to provide high-quality, patient-centered, and culturally sensitive care.
