Summary:
Collaborative partnerships between institutions for global health learning should aim for reciprocity to provide mutual benefits.

Global Health Classroom (GHCR) is a case-based global health learning model involving medical students from different countries and health disciplines learning about each other’s health systems, cultures, and determinants of health in a “virtual classroom” via videoconference. It has been developed and implemented at medical schools in New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, and Mexico. GHCR was awarded a Patil Innovation Award in AMEE 2019.

The Masterclass will focus on how teachers and institutes can utilise the GHCR for collaborative global health learning. We will also explore potential collaborations among the workshop participants.
