Do you think there should be more Global Health in UK Postgraduate Training? If so what? …

Opportunity to contribute to development of Global Health competencies for health professionals


Please consider taking this surveaomrc-logoy to help to develop global health competencies for doctors and other health professionals. Any health professional, health academic, health educator, patient or indeed any member of the public may take part. All responses to this survey will remain anonymous. However we would like to know your profession or role relation to the health service to inform analysis of the results.

In our increasingly interdependent world, global health is of relevance to all healthcare professionals. Population movement and shifting disease patterns mean that healthcare professionals practicing in the UK need to be competent in delivering effective healthcare to multicultural societies with diverse needs. Clinicians are increasingly being asked to take on leadership roles that would benefit from an understanding of disparate healthcare systems and the impact of globalisation on health.

The Intercollegiate Global Health Curriculum Group would like to invite you to take part in round 1 of a three-part consultation. We ask for your comments on the draft competencies. To thank you for your involvement, we will enter you into a prize draw for one of two £50 book vouchers.

The aim of this consultation is to produce a framework for postgraduate training that identifies generic, core competencies in global health for postgraduate healthcare professional training. The focus is on “what a doctor working in a high income country needs to be able to do”, and it will be accompanied with examples of how training to achieve these competencies could be delivered. The results may inform competency frameworks for other health professionals and in low and middle income countries.
