A scoping review of regenerative medicine in medical education

BMC Med Educ. 2022 Nov 5;22(1):758. doi: 10.1186/s12909-022-03816-7.


Stem cell therapeutics and regenerative medicine have taken a strong foothold in biomedicine. However, most physicians are currently not adequately prepared to identify, refer, and deliver safe regenerative therapies. To understand this gap, we sought to characterize published literature on current physician training in regenerative medicine. Our scoping review describes current training strategies to bridge the gap and integrate such education into medical curricula for adequate training.

Keywords: Clinician training; Medical education; Regenerative medicine; Stem cell therapeutics.
