Course Description

Healthcare professional education is the new frontier of medical missions. Do you teach or are you planning to teach in an international medical school, residency, or other healthcare training program? This workshop will help you provide quality academics while navigating cultural considerations.

The workshop builds upon previous in-person and online faculty development training for international service and offers options for those who have taken the previous training and those who have not.

In 2019, a group of those involved in medical education as missions came together to develop a training program that would help them and others improve their service. The inaugural training, Cross-Cultural Healthcare Education: A Workshop for Educators, was hosted in September 2019 in person at Christian Health Service Corps training center. Participants agreed that this useful training should be offered annually.

When the covid-19 global pandemic was declared in 2020, faculty and co-sponsoring organizations for the training discussed the importance of continuing to offer training resources for teaching medicine internationally and transitioned the planned sessions to self-paced online enduring material, located in the CMDA Learning Center (free to CMDA members with a nominal charge to non-members). To access those sessions please CLICK HERE. (It is recommended you complete some of the online asynchronous sessions before attending the workshop.)
