Online Workshop: Making Space for Social Medicine in Medical School Curricula: Transnational Perspectives and Pedagogy

Posted on April 13, 2022

Presentations – Teaching Materials – Discussions 

Illness and healing can never fully be separated from social context. Yet while medical education around the world has legible standards for bioscientific subject materials, we are far more uneven in how we teach the social sciences necessary for the study of health and medicine.  This event, sponsored by the Global Social Medicine Network, brings together educators from four continents on the challenges and opportunities for teaching social medicine in the 21st century.
