Event details

Dr Kathy Kendall co-delivered a pre-conference workshop at AMEE (Association for Medical Education in Europe) in Helsinki, Finland on 27 August. The workshop was titled 'Top Tips: Teaching Social and Behavioural Sciences in Medical Education'.

Calls are being made to reform medical education in order to equip graduates with the skills required to identify societal and behavioural factors that contribute to illness or influence treatment. This requires medical schools to ensure that social and behavioural sciences (SBS) are integrated into the curriculum. We will look at 'what' core SBS content to include on the 'where and when' challenges of integration and 'how' to teach these subjects.
