Third Annual National Conference in Medical Education


This refers to observing a variety of settings in which health care is provided to the community. There is evidence that involving patients and their families in health professionals’ learning provide students a better understanding of the holistic medicine. The MD Education team, at the College of Health Sciences is maintaining a pool of interested participants who can find some time to talk to the students in sessions. You can devote 2 – 4 hours per semester and this small gesture will go a long way to create the future workforce to take care of our health in years to come.
