Global Med Ed Café

BEI Global Med Ed Café  

The BEI Global Med Ed Café sessions are a bimonthly series aimed to promote conversations on teaching and learning among BWH educators and a global community of educators. The goals are to: expand the community of BWH educators and motivate external collaborations, reflect on common educational challenges and co-construct solutions and promote awareness of the learning culture at different regions of the world, adopt and adapt ideas from other institutions. Each session focuses on an educational topic or problem moderated by an international educational leader with expertise in the area. The expert provides an overview of this topic, after which participants work on a specific task in small groups and report back to the expert. The session concludes with a summary of key points, reflections and new questions on the topic.
