Education across different cultures.
Since the 90s, a massive globalization has started medical education. Students, teachers and curricula move around the globe. This globalization produces debates on questions like whether the didactics developed in one culture is also suitable for other cultures? Do we want universal standards for physicians or should standards be culturally specific?I’m involved in a research line on cross-cultural education. I supervise PhD students that undertake different studies to cross-cultural education.
