Innovative Programme Elements Add Value to a FAIMER Regional Institute Faculty Development Fellowship Model in Southern Africa

The Foundation for the Advancement of Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) is a US-based non-profit organisation committed to improving health professions education to improve global health. FAIMER traditionally offers a two year fellowship programme; 2 residential and 3 distance learning sessions and an education innovation project in the fellow’s home institution. The focus is on education methods, leadership/management, scholarship and the development of an international community of health professions educators. During the past 5 years, FAIMER has expanded the programme and established regional institutes in India[3], Brazil[1] and Southern Africa (SAFRI)[1]. We implemented the programme in Africa in 2008, introducing 5 innovations to the generic programme. SAFRI was created as an independent voluntary association to reflect the multinational intent of the programme. Aim of project To understand the impact of the innovations in the structure and implementation of the programme on its quality and the experience of the participants in it. Conclusions Faculty development programmes can significantly enhance their impact: Be sensitive to the local political climate Demonstrate wide ownership Focus on developing a community of practice Work within the professional time constraints of Fellows and faculty Maximise learning opportunities by linking to other scholarly activities

A hydrid model in medicine and human biology degrees through an interdisciplinary subject

The Faculty of Health and Life sciences of University Pompeu Fabra (UPF) was born at 1998 with the aims to form professionals in biomedicine and health sciences. Four years ago, a pilot plan for the degree adaptation to the Bologna declaration was initiated. One of the initiatives was the introduction of problem based learning (PBL) method as a hybrid model. PBL was integrated as an interdisciplinary activity, involving all the subjects. The pilot results lead us to design a different hybrid PBL model for new Bologna degrees started this year: Human Biology and Medicine. PBL has been introduced to both new curricula as an interdisciplinary subject coursed during all the degree: Integrated Biomedicine (Human Biology degree) and Integrated Medicine (Medicine degree)

Virtual Solutions to Real Problems: an Innovative Work Experience Support Programme

Poster presentation delivered at the AMEE 2009 Conference, focussing on work undertaken by St George’s committed to ensuring access to undergraduate healthcare courses is equitable. We recognise that the requirement for potential applicants to undertake and reflect on relevant work experience can be a barrier for under-represented groups. Such applicants are less likely to have social connections to support their preparation for application Building on our innovative use of e-learning technologies, we have developed a website for potential applicants offering essential information and guidance about finding and reflecting on work experience to support students’ preparation for application and interview Students from all backgrounds have access to information to support work experience and enhance their preparation for university application. The structured reflective tools include a journal template for download and online blogging, which were discussed during the session.

INFLUENCE OF DIETARY FACTOR IN STUDENT PERFORMANCE

Introduction Nutrition during adolescence is of great importance in the quality of life and in school performance. In our society, eating habits are changing due to socio-cultural and family factors, new ideas about self-image and a global food culture. Data published in the National Health Survey (ENSANUT 2006), suggest that excess weight in adolescents between 12 and 19 years, has a national average of 31.9% in Mexico. One in 3 teens have excessive weight in our country. Several studies suggest that foods high in energy density and large portions of food, increase energy consumption and hence weight gain. Bottled soft drinks currently consumed, contribute to the epidemic of obesity and type II diabetes in Mexico. The intake of energy from these drink, represent 21% of the total energy consumption in Mexican adolescents. This, added to the energy from the diet, both contribute to these epidemics. Therefore, the adoption of patterns of consumption of healthy food and drinks for adolescents should be a priority for the population, since a well-balanced diet positively affects the physical and intellectual development of adolescents.

Legal and Ethical Issues in Medical Treatment of Children with Variations of Sex Anatomy

Speaker: Anne Tamar-Mattis An estimated 1 in 2,000 babies is born with a Difference of Sex Development (DSD or intersex condition). Currently, there is much controversy regarding the best course of treatment for those children with DSD born with atypical genitals. However, little attention has gone to the process of decision-making, or to other important questions such as sterilization of children with DSD or protecting privacy rights. This workshop begins with an overview of the biology of DSD and the basic legal and ethical principles of surrogate consent in pediatric cases. We will then discuss some key legal and ethical questions. Participants will become familiar with key legal and ethical issues in the treatment of children with DSDs, with special attention to unsettled questions of law and uncertain medical outcomes. Participants will deepen their understanding of the ethics and law of surrogate decision-making for children. Participants will be able to identify potential situations in the treatment of children with DSDs where additional legal or ethical consultation may be indicated.
