Teaching Molecular Medicine within Medical Education: No time to wait

Issue: 
Pages: 
81–3

INTRODUCTION

In summary, there is a tremendous challenge that all medical educators must embrace in preparing new physicians who will work in the post genomic era of medicine and where individual genome sequences, or at least sections of them, will be part of the medical files they must review. How molecular medicine will be translated into better healthcare will depend on how healthcare professionals and physicians in particular, use and handle this information.

DOI:

The Editor,

Sir,

Medical cooperation plays a major role in the improvement of healthcare in developing countries, including in the Caribbean region. Collective action to promote the health of the Caribbean people was taken several decades ago through the formation of the Caribbean Cooperation in Health (1). There have been improvements in important health indicators such as maternal and child health, and immunization.
