The need to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in health professions education globally is an area of great interest amongst all stakeholders.  Around the world, we are seeing health professions students, faculty, and institutions along with other stakeholder organizations working to effect change and increase diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of healthcare.

This session will feature four presentations, three from health professions educators and students and one from a global pharmaceutical company, that will help to pain the picture of what is happening around the world and at different levels and environments.  Educational perspectives from students and faculty in Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom will be provided, with three examples of programs in place to increase access to careers in the health professions, to assist in the socialization of students from varying backgrounds, and to encourage dialogue amongst diverse students and practitioners.  An example of how a global pharmaceutical company has developed a leading approach to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in healthcare.

The presentations will be followed by a live, interactive panel discussion featuring questions from session participants.

This session is supported by Merck KGaA
