Cultural Competence Education for Students in Medicine and Public Health
Report of an Expert Panel
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) charged an expert panel of educators with identifying a set of competencies appropriate for learners in disciplines of both medicine and public health to prepare culturally competent practitioners. The competencies are designed to enable faculty in medical schools and graduate schools/programs of public health to standardize curricula, benchmark student performance, and prepare graduates for culturally competent practice. The panel additionally provided recommendations for embedding cultural competence education within and across curricula of medicine and public health, highlights of exemplary case studies, and a road map for the future.
