While the characteristics of Millennial learners have been widely discussed with regard to medical education, a new generation of learners will soon be entering health education: Generation Z. Despite their relative youth, a great deal is already known about this group. Although they share many similarities to their Millennial predecessors, key differences may have an impact on how Generation Z students’ preferences, perspectives, and motivations relate to professional training. 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:

  • 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
