Culturally Competent in Medical Education

The project aims to support medical teachers to become more proficient in cultural competence and ensure an effective implementation of cultural competence in medical curricula. Medical teachers and medical school leadership are the main target groups of C2ME.

C2ME has launched the online module ‘Culturally Appropriate Teaching in Medicine’, developed by Prof Dr. Nisha Dogra (University of Leicester). Click on ‘Self-Enroll in this course’. Two more modules will become available end of September 2016.

See here for our third newsletter (Nov 2015), our second newsletter (Sept 2015) and first newsletter (April 2015).

For our final meeting we met in the Academic Medical Centre/University of Amsterdam, 18 september 2015 which was a half-day symposium on cultural competencies in medical education. Dr. Janusz Janczukowicz (AMEE Executive Committee member/ Head of the Centre for Medical Education- Medical University of Lodz) was one of the speakers. The symposium was well-visited with approximately 70 participants! Click for a summary of this day. A declaration to address the urgent need for culturally competent health professionals in an increasingly diverse world was presented.

The C2ME project is funded with the support of the EACEA ERASMUS LifeLong Learning Programme (2013-2015).
