We explored this topic together in a webinar in February 2016. You asked for its return and we brought it back.

What student development are we aiming for in global health education? How do we assess learner growth that requires demonstration, consistency, and varying contexts? What controversies exist in global health competencies that every educator should be aware of?

Competency-based education is flourishing in professional training regardless of discipline. Interprofessional Global Health Competencies were proposed in 2015 by the Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH). This webinar explored the use of competencies in global health education, including diving into controversies and challenges, as well as outlining consensus and trends. Discussed controversies included cross cultural contexts, false sense of expertise, logistical challenges at institutional levels, and much more.
