*Global Determinants of Health and Development

Since 2008, all third-year medical students have been offered a compulsory module entitled ‘Global Determinants of Health and Development’. This is intended to provide a context for their Summer electives which they undertake after third year – approximately 70% of students work in low-income countries. The module is made up of five workshops and common plenary sessions. Guest lectures have been delivered by the International Red Cross, Medicins Sans Frontiers, Suas Educational Development and Concern among others. Student assessment involves the production of a conference-style group poster which is judged by a panel of researchers and NGO colleagues. The winner of the poster competition determines the destination of a donation from the School of Medicine to a charity of their choice.
