Medical Education in Closed Country Contexts

Repeat Clinical Preparation
  • Breakout Session
  • November 14 2020 1:35 PM - 2:35 PM
  • P, PA, NP, N, DO

Have you ever compared the country rank lists for the most fragile states, most severe church persecution and poor health statistics and noticed that the same subset of countries appear on each list? This fact leads to a unique and growing opportunity to teach medicine even in the most “closed” countries. Come and hear how long-term relationships through medical education specifically ties to gospel proclamation without proselytization. Learn how teaching holistic health (the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model) and critical thinking in a values-based education can invoke students and colleagues to explore faith questions. Discover what factors contribute to healthy long-term presence and how to avoid potential problems or premature exits.
