Transformative Education for Global Health - Preparing Health Professionals for an Interdependent World
14 December 2011
15 February 2012, 11:00-16:30 @ UCL Institute of Child Health
A joint conference between UCL, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine , the London International Development Centre and the Institute of Education (with support from the Lancet)
Aimed at staff and students from local institutions. The event may be of interest to any outside students, academics, health professionals and policy makers with an interest in global health.
Does health professional education need to be rethought?
The recent Lancet Commission on the future of health professional education makes a compelling case that a changing global health context mandates a new approach to the education of tomorrow's professionals. What steps are needed to educate future health professionals to take responsibility not only for individual patients and communities but also for the health systems that serve them?
This one day conference will invite critical reflection on these issues from leading academics, students and health professionals. The conference will address innovation in the following areas of health professional education, which reflect key themes from the Lancet Commission.
Health professional education in an interdependent world:
- Education for health systems development: competency based or transformative?
- Training for leadership, teamwork and advocacy
- Global health curricula for health professionals
- Tensions between professionalization, regulation and inter-disciplinary working
- Can institutions be socially accountable?
Call for abstracts
We would like to invite contributions from academics, students and health
professionals undertaking research or teaching in any of the above areas. Please
submit proposals headed either "CASE STUDY" or "POSTER" to Paloma Garcia-Paredes by 13th January 2012. These proposals
should be not more than 400 words in length. Selected case studies will be invited
to make short presentations during the conference and posters will displayed to
participants on the day.
Information regarding registration will be circulated shortly. There will be no charge for this event.
