In our school, we have many important decisions and Medical Education milestones looming over us like renewing our Accreditation. This deems it imperative for medical students to learn how to be effective advocates. It is also essential that they understand how “education” in its entirety works, and have a general basic understanding of the education process in this faculty. Thus here comes the necessity of equipping those students with integral knowledge and skills to lead this delicate change.
