Abstract: Educators in the sphere of medicine face a number of complex challenges in the provision of a learning environment suited to ensuring students acquire essential core competencies as well as additional skills and expertise targeted to their area of practice This needs to be done against a series of standards in medical curricula for quality assurance purposes. Furthermore, in medicine, the concept of life long learning is essential to the further honing of available skills and the acquisition of new expertise relevant to the ever-changing and increasing demands on medical practitioners. Mobility of graduates and doctors has highlighted this, as moving to a different geographical area invariably causes a change in the working environment, the medical problems encountered and the resources available to deal with these issues.
