The branch of medicine is extremely challenging as health-care professionals deal with the lives of humans and the very fact that each patient is different from another. Most of the regulatory bodies governing the delivery of medical education across the globe expect that upon the completion of undergraduate training, a graduate student should attain the core competency to become a lifelong learner. In order to become a lifelong learner, a student has to be a self-directed learner, which essentially requires loads of motivation. The ideal approach will be to carry out aptitude tests before a student joins the medical school and based on the results only enroll them. However, this practice is not being followed in most medical schools across the world. To conclude, acknowledging the complicated and vast nature of the medical curriculum, it is crucial that medical students should be motivated toward their learning. It is the need of the hour that medical teachers and administrators should look for opportunities to motivate the students and provide them with a suitable learning atmosphere that encourages learning.
