Abstract

Technology is developing rapidly and affecting the field of medicine in two main areas- medical education and health care. As a rapidly evolving field with the need and ability to constantly incorporate newer technologies, medical education must be able to prepare future doctors as per changing trends in practice patterns, the role of medicine in disease diagnosis and treatment, and innovations, and advances in medical science. In this article, we discuss the various digital learning tools introduced into medical education, as well as their advantages and disadvantages. We also try to understand how the shift to artificial intelligence may affect medical education and practice and how we can make technology efficient without losing the human dimension in doctor-patient relationships.
