90 Minute Workshop
Educational Programs, Workshops, Seminars, New Idea Session, and Small Group Discussions
We hear stories about students who do not feel welcome and who do not meet culturally acceptable norms whether in the classroom or the clinic. Awareness from the staff and faculty is the first step in addressing cultural competencies. The second is collaborating across roles and departments to create strategies that integrate internationally and culturally diverse students into the school whether inside the classroom, clinic or through campus programming. This session focuses on discussing real issues that have arisen around cultural competencies and attendees will collaborate with one another to come up with strategies and solutions for these issues.
