AMEE Webinar: Health, climate change and other environmental determinants of health in the medical curriculum. The ANZ experience
Are we there yet? Monitoring engagement with health, climate change and other environmental determinants of health in the medical curriculum. The Australian and New Zealand experience
Presenters: Lynne Madden, University of Notre Dame, Sydney & Michelle McLean, the Medical Programme, Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia
Objective: To demonstrate how change can be achieved in different environments by working collegially across regional medical schools.
The Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand have established a Climate Change and Health Working Group to address climate change and health in the curriculum. By working collegially across medical schools, we are demonstrating that more can be achieved by supporting each other and at scale and pace. We believe that this offers a model for medical education in other countries as well as other health professional groups.
