IP encompasses a complex list of procedures requiring knowledge, technical skills and competence. Modern, learner-centric educational philosophies and an explosion of multidimensional educational tools including manikins, simulators, online resources, social media and formal programs can foster learning in IP, promoting professionalism and a culture of lifelong learning. This paper provides background and guidance to a structured, multidimensional and learner-centric strategy for medical procedural education. Focusing on our experience in IP, we describe how competency-based measures, simulation technology and various teaching modalities contribute to a more uniform learning environment in which patients do not suffer the burdens of procedure-related training.
