Healthcare professional education is the new frontier of medical missions. Do you teach or are you planning to teach in an international medical school, residency, or other healthcare training program? Teaching Healthcare in a Global Setting was designed to help you provide quality academics while navigating cultural considerations.

In 2019, a group of those involved in medical education as missions came together to develop a training program that would help them and others improve their service. The inaugural training, Cross-Cultural Healthcare Education: A Workshop for Educators, was hosted in September 2019 in person at the Christian Health Service Corps training center. Participants agreed that this useful training should be offered annually. When the COVID-19 global pandemic was declared in 2020, faculty and co-sponsoring organizations for the training discussed the importance of continuing to offer training resources for teaching medicine internationally and transitioned the planned sessions to an online enduring material platform.

The Teaching Healthcare in a Global Setting faculty and co-sponsoring organizations invite you to access the sessions at your own pace in any order you choose and hope to continue building on these resources with future live and virtual trainings.
