This generation of physicians will witness a profound change in the practice of medicine. The digital world is upon us and this, more than any other change, will fundamentally alter the way medicine is practiced and taught. While there may be many, we are proposing 3 key literacies that will define the doctor of 2033. Network awareness, information control, and digital content creation. Network awareness. The ability to communicate, collaborate, share, and learn as part of our global network will become a critical skill. Information control. The body of medical knowledge is beyond the point where any doctor can know what there is to know. By 2033 doctors will need the tools and skills to manage information, inputs and exploding networked knowledge. Digital content creation. The ability to use basic communication platforms to translate, transfer and share information and knowledge will be a necessary skill for the physician, especially the academic leader. There will be many new skill sets necessary for the doctor of 2033. Educators have no option but to build medical education around the realities of changing workflows and a digital environment."
