Medical Education Grand Rounds: Culture, Climate, and Our community: The intersection of the generations RSVP

Nancy Oriol, MD,
Dean for Students 
Harvard Medical School

There are 4 generations practicing medicine today. Who are they, who defines them, and why does it matter? Everyone says that generations differ; is this true, and what would make generations differ? While it may be hard to disentangle all the reasons that generations appear to differ, there are 3 processes that seem to be important: 1. Lifecycle effects ( in age); 2. Period effects (seminal events); and 3. Cohort effects (major events that happen as the cohort comes of age).

Each generation has its own cultural norms that vary within and across generations. Individuals may experience the culture of another generation as more or less congenial. As we each consider our own culture as "normal," we may cause others to experience us as biased and judgmental. Such experiences and perceptions affect education in medicine. In this session, we will consider education and professional development through multiple lenses: culture, the way of life of a group of people determined by their common values; climate, what people feel within a prevailing culture; and the community of physicians in the workforce today arising from 4 different generationally-determined cultures. How shall we all get along? How can we learn to harness these forces to propel progress in medical education and practice?
