Health Professions Education Without Borders
As advances in communication and technology bring us closer, globalisation of healthcare standards is inevitable. The 21st century healthcare professionals should have global credentials yet sensitive to cultural and local values and needs. To be borderless, health professions education has to look at international accreditation and standards, models of health professions education partnership and their impact on healthcare services, the use of technology-enhanced learning in promoting personalised learning, assessments, interprofessional education and healthcare equity and distribution.
Being borderless may have immense impact in the training of future healthcare professions; from the liberalisation/democratisation of values, regulations, cultural norms and standardisation of educational outcomes. In this day and age, it may be important for educational institutions to adopt shared standards and criteria for graduating global health professionals.
This conference will look at the various aspects of health professions education without borders, and how this may improve healthcare worldwide.
Globalisation of higher education is very much the key trend in this era of knowledge economy, technological advancement as well as global movement of workforce. It offers vast opportunities for institutions, policy makers, scholars and students, yet challenges are present in terms of quality assurance and immigration control among the other implications. IMEC 2017 is a 3-day interactive conference featuring internationally renowned speakers and trainers, covering a wide range of topics related to the models of health professions education and the opportunities, challenges and future of health professions education in an era of globalisation. IMEC 2017 is also platform for educational innovators to present their innovations for the Ron Harden Innovation in Medical Education (RHIME) Award
