Abstract

This study examined the current state of medical education in Egypt, and how it has been affected by the current political, financial and educational situation. It also examined the barriers to adopting technology in medical education and the reasons behind the need for integrating technology into medical education in Egypt. This study also examined the emergence of technology-based education in the U.S. in order to provide a conception of what the potential is for mediated medical instruction. This study consisted of a literature review of studies from three databases, EBSCO, PubMed, and Cochrane library. Relevant studies concerning the subjects were identified. As a result of this study, reform in Egyptian medical education can be made by using the U.S. approach customized to Egyptian situation. Recommendations from what is found were made for improving the integration of technology in medical education in Egypt. Recommendations for future research are also provided.
