For the last four years the Centre for Medical Education has been in partnership with the Faculty of Health Sciences, Aksum University, Ethiopia. The purpose of this partnership has been to support the new medical school in Aksum, set up by the Government of Ethiopia in 2011. Since then, academics and clinicians from Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and from Barts Health Trust have visited Aksum to run workshops on teaching and on clinical medicine.
A number of Barts medical students have also visited Aksum, either during their Medical Education bachelors degree or during their 5th year SSC. They have undertaken projects on medical education and enhanced their own clinical learning in a novel setting (similar to an elective). The Partnership is looking for Barts students who are willing to contribute in running the programme and for generating ideas for taking the work forward.
If you are interested in finding out more about this Partnership, you are invited to this open meeting at the end of September.
