In this report, Technavio highlights the gamification in medical education as one of the key emerging trends in the global medical-education market:

The medical students report higher cases of burnout as compared to other students due to strenuous curriculum and environment. Thus, to motivate students, medical schools are implementing the concept of gamification wherein the game-design elements are applied.

"Medical students can be provided with a platform for visualisation and interaction with the material. Gamification also involves the incorporation of games to develop medical skills in small-group classes. It provides better learning opportunities as students can gather medical knowledge through simulated results," says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on K12 and higher education.

This market research report segments the global medical-education market by courses (graduate courses, certifications, and trainings, and postgraduate courses), by learning model (blended learning and online learning), and geographical regions (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).
