Healthcare and medical profession stands at crossroads today. Unprecedented technological advances as a result of ongoing scientific research has revolutionized healthcare around the world. Despite these developments, we are still faced with a huge burden of communicable diseases, an ever rising burden of noncommunicable diseases, coupled with an increasing load of mental health diseases and accidents in healthcare. There are several reasons for our failure to address healthcare issues of our populations, including a desperate need to revamp existing medical and health care related curriculum. In addition to considering curriculum change, perhaps single most needed change we need to address is a growing need to develop leadership in medical healthcare related profession.
