Exploring the World Through Friendships – A Novel Approach to Global Health Education

Matthew Lee

Global health education has never been more important, but opportunities to explore new worlds are often either limited or expensive at medical school. Aimed primarily at medical students and junior doctors, but relevant to all healthcare professionals, a collaborative online learning community has been developed by students and junior doctors between Cardiff Medical School and medical schools at the University of Namibia and University of Zambia. Through a series of online seminars, group discussions and social events, the group is forging international friendships across continents, providing accessible and affordable educational opportunities that will last throughout their medical careers.

The session will share the story of the development of the group and the challenges it has faced. It is hoped this will inspire other medical educators and students to consider developing similar networks with their own international partners to strengthen global health alliances from students’ very first days at university.

Venue:  

Address:
Dynamic Earth, 112 Holyrood Rd, Edinburgh, Aberdeenshire, EH8 8AS, United Kingdom

Biosphere @ Dynamic Earth

Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
