Biomedical versus biopsychosocial model in medicine: Needs of curriculum development

Curriculum and competences
The aim of this paper is to point a gap in education and clinical practice regarding a biopsychosocial model in medicine. In the same time we are trying to give some arguments to explain needs of revising curriculum at Universities in R. Macedonia. In our view, the biopsychosocial model is a vision and an approach to practice rather than an empirically verifiable theory, a coherent philosophy, or a clinical method. Rather than aspiring to “being biopsychosocial”-some imagined, static state-commitment to an ongoing process of “becoming biopsychosocial” is more pragmatic and realistic.
