Abstract:
The medical profession is confronted by inequality in access to health care worldwide. There is an ethical responsibility that this be addressed during the training of new doctors. We examined the baseline interest in international child health among medical students in an Irish University and we looked at the impact of a clinical approach to global child health education on their interest and knowledge. We developed a global child health module with a clinical focus and incorporated it into the paediatric curriculum. Two questionnaires were developed to determine student’s perceptions of the relevance of international child health and their knowledge of core topics in international child health pre and post taking the module. 100/130 questionnaires were completed.
