Med J Aust. 2006 Jul 3;185(1):35-6. doi: 10.5694/j.1326-5377.2006.tb00449.x.


Medical career preferences are changing, with doctors working fewer hours and seeking "work-life balance". There is an urgent need for creative workplace redesign if Australia is to have a sustainable health care system. Postgraduate medical education must adapt to changing medical roles. Curricula should be outcomes-based, should allow flexible delivery, and should consider future workforce needs.
