This report documents existing Indigenous health curriculum content in Australian medical schools, and also discusses the key contextual issues and implications in delivering quality Indigenous health content.
From time-to-time Medical Deans publishes reports and statements to assist medical schools with matters which are common to all programs and where a consistent perspective is appropriate. These provide a framework for each medical school to tailor to their own context, and to share more widely with students and stakeholders the consolidated views and positions of our member schools.
This curriculum framework provides medical schools with a set of guidelines for the development and delivery of Indigenous health content in core medical education. It articulates the basic components of a functional curriculum to ensure medical students receive the right information and skills development to enable them to become the best doctors we can produce for the improvement of Indigenous health outcomes.
These Guidelines provides direction to medical schools in the development, implementation and review of infectious diseases policies and programs.
