Generation Z as Medical Students: What Can We Expect?
While the characteristics of Millennial learners and their differences from older educators have been widely discussed with regard to medical education, a new generation of learners will soon be entering health education: Generation Z. Although they share many similarities to their Millennial predecessors, their perspectives and preferences may have an impact on how Gen Z students approach medical training with implications for instruction and beyond. This session will review the basics of the generations active in medical education today with particular focus on the characteristics of Generation Z students.

Following this session, audience members will be able to:

  • Review characteristics of the 5 generations currently active in medical education
  • Differentiate characteristics of Millennial and Generation Z learners
  • Discuss the impact of Generation Z students’ preferences and tendencies on medical education
  • Develop potential strategies for better engaging Generation Z health professions students
