Item description for Implementing Community-Oriented Teaching in Medical Education: A Case from Vietnam (Bulletins of the Royal Tropical Institute) by D. Burck...
All over the world, medical faculties face the problem of the exponential growth of medical information, and mounting pressure on the time available for teaching. During the 1990s the medical faculties in Vietnam became aware of a mismatch between the hospital-based knowledge and the practical skills needed by graduates and the training necessary for the situation they would work in, which ideally would require a medical system focused on primary health care. The curricula and teaching methods and materials of all faculties needed revision and improvement. The Hanoi Medical School in Vietnam collaborated with the Royal Tropical Institute in the Netherlands on a project aimed at achieving a more primary health care-oriented curriculum for four medical faculties in Vietnam, and at the adequate collection and use of health data in teaching, research and program monitoring.
This book describes the development of the project, the trials and successes, provides background information on Vietnam, the history of medical education there, and the struggles of teachers to change their teaching methods. Others who are trying to implement change in medical and other faculties can learn from the experiences in this book.
