Medical Delegation

A medical delegation from Argentina will be visiting Australia in early 2015 (23-27 March) to learn more about how problem based learning is used in medical education, how the Australian government is supporting the delivery of specialist and GP services in rural and regional communities, and see how e-health technological innovations are used to inform medical education.

The delegation will visit the University of Newcastle School of Medicine and Public Health, ANU Medical School, the UDRH in Tamworth and Coffs Harbour Health Campus as well as a private GP practice facility in Coffs Harbour, NSW. The visit will identify points of joint collaboration in further curriculum development in areas of common interest, promote student and staff exchanges, discuss strategies used for the internationalization of the curriculum, and discuss areas of possible research collaboration.
