Being a lifelong learner is one of the primary roles practiced by an Indian medical graduate (IMG). To initiate IMGs into this role, the process of self-directed learning has been introduced as a component of the recently introduced competency-based medical education curriculum framework. Given the background, health professions educators need to train themselves in implementing self-directed learning modules with clarity and understanding. This book on Self-directed learning for health professionals educators- from theory to practice elaborates on the principles of self-directed learning, demystifying the misconceptions while hand-holding the readers step by step with ready-to-use templates for successful planning and conducting impactful self-directed learning sessions for IMGs.
