Summary of theme and why it is important:  Very innovative in the 18th and 19th century, the medical curriculum in Vienna was very traditional until the end of the 20th century. At this time, there was a sudden turnaround with a significant curricular change. An integrated curriculum was implemented, for human medicine, as well as for the newly launched undergraduate programme of dental medicine. In this workshop, experiences of this process will be shared and discussed, including:

  • It needs time you don´t have when implemented!
  • Conservativism versus innovation freaks
  • Challenges, traps, barriers, critical success factors.
  • Lessons learned about, for and from change management

The participants will have the opportunity to visit the past, the present and the future in teaching by site visits organized by the Medical University, including unique medical-historical sites and walks, showing medical education in Vienna from its beginnings to prospective developments.

Who should participate in the Pre-Conference Workshop?  The workshop is relevant for everyone interested in the experiences gained from the successful implementation of a curriculum reform at a medical university enrolling 660 students a year in medicine and 80 students in dental medicine, and for all those interested in the history of medical education more generally.

What will they gain from participating?  At the end of the workshop participants

  • can draw lessons from the reform of the undergraduate medical curriculum in Vienna
  • can derive conclusions from past historical experience in medical teaching for today.

Cost: Euros 215 (includes coffee, lunch and tour).
