Training Modules for Teaching of Public Health in Medical Schools in South-East Asia Region
AbstractThis training module for public health teaching in undergraduate medical schools has been developed in collaboration with the Department of Preventive and Social Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. It is key study material for the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for South-East Asia Regional Training Programme on Improving Teaching of Public Health in Undergraduate Medical Schools and is organized into six modules to match the first six modules of the Regional Training Programme. It primarily aims to provide the staff and faculty of medical schools in the South-East Asia Region, particularly those who will be actively involved in the design and implementation of public health teaching in medical schools, with the latest evidence and knowledge on the subject. For example, the medical school faculties and teachers who are responsible or involved in public health teaching, medical education specialists or other medical educators who are in charge of overall medical curricula or academic coordinators and Institutional leaders who are involved in medical education policy, such as the medical school deans or vice deans for academic affairs. The important contributions of the experts and participants in the Regional Consultative Meeting on Regional Training Programme on Public Health Teaching in Undergraduate Medical Education, 1921 September 2012, Bangkok, Thailand, and the Regional Meeting to Review Progress in Strengthening Teaching of Public Health in Medical Schools, 1113 December 2013, Pattaya, Thailand, in reviewing, updating and finalizing the training modules and guidelines are much appreciated.
