Making the Global to Local Link in Academia: Concepts and Models (Virginia Rowthorn)
Rowthorn is the Guest Editor for an upcoming Annals of Global Health supplemental edition on Global/Local Initiatives. The supplement will contain 14 articles written by global health educators (many of whom are members of the CUGH Education Committee). The articles describe a range of initiatives educators are undertaking to help students and trainees recognize the value of bi-directional learning and the importance of providing care and conducting research in a way that supports vulnerable members of society wherever they may be.

CUGH's Educational Products Subcommittee (EPS) and NextGenU.org are collaborating to provide the world's first free, accredited medical and public health education. For this purpose, the EPS is conducting an internet search to identify existing curricula and courses. CUGH's EPS, NextGenU.org, and other partners will conjointly provide further trainings such as the Pre-Departure Global Health Training, a Population Health course, and full residency programs in Preventive Medicine, Family Medicine, and Pediatrics. This session will demonstrate how to use these powerful educational tools to share learning resources globally.
Trainee Advisory Committee (TAC) has significantly expanded its existing projects and initiated new projects that bridge CUGH and world-wide trainees in global health. TAC has greatly increased its social media presence and has successfully launched a brand new trainee program named 'Campus Representative Program' as part of our non-TAC trainee involvement initiative. Approved by CUGH Secretariat, this Campus Rep Program now has 42 trainee members that represent forty-two CUGH member institutions in global health. TAC has been actively engaging with Campus Reps with the aim to strengthen the bridge between CUGH and global trainees. TAC has refined its internal organization and working methods, with whole TAC meeting held every two months, and small-group meetings held in between as needed. This working method has greatly improved the efficiency within TAC, including the new membership applications. Finally, TAC has also been actively involved in CUGH advocacy initiative, CUGH website design, Young Speakers' Bureau, and most importantly event planning for the 2017 CUGH conference
(3:40 - 4:30 pm) | Round Table Topic Discussions based on all presentations
4.30-5. 30: Where to next with global health education- Top
priorities (Quentin Eichbaum | Jessica Evert )
In this final session we will invite each of the previous speakers to state briefly and specifically what they believe should be among the highest priority activities relevant to improving global health education. Priorities can be related to any of the many topics and activities subsumed under “global health education,” e.g., products, competencies, methods, standards, courses, resources, training and trainers, partnerships. In identifying top priorities presenters are asked to reflect on the entire field of global health education and not just the topic area they addressed.
