This commentary briefly looks at some history of Medical Education in Scotland with a focus on the last two decades since the publication of 'Tomorrow's Doctors' by the General Medical Council in 1993. The current influences on Scottish Medical Education are discussed, and some of the advantages provided by technology are described. The piece concludes by emphasising the current strengths of Scottish Medical Education, which are learning from contact with patients and good clinical role models, to help students make sense of their clinical experience.
