Modernising Undergraduate Medical Education in EU Eastern Neighbouring Area
Date du début: 15 oct. 2011,

The primary goal of the project is development and implementation of new model of undergraduate medical education in Partner Countries (GE, UA, AZ) Medical Schools (PCMS) to comply with European standards requiring compatibility of curricula, delivery and assessment methodology. The most rational way of accomplishing this goal is establishment long-term partnership between PCMS and EU Universities (from UK, NL, IT) and support of international and local organizations. The project envisages fundamental educational reform starting from development and piloting new (Geriatrics) and upgraded (Public Health) courses, introducing new methods of teaching (in clinical reasoning and research skills), creation of Teacher Training Centers (TTC) based on faculty development program, and then development of integrated undergraduate curriculum, followed by implementation of whole model of innovated medical education in PCMS. Project implementation process will comprise three years. During the 1st year (Development Phase) we aim to develop and pilot new courses in PCMS, restructuring of the existing curricula, develop integrated medical curricula based on elaborated blueprints, training of academics from PCMS based on faculty development program in TTCs (one in each PC). In the 2nd and 3rd year (Transformative Phase) we will run the 1st and 2nd year integrated curricula in GE (TSMU and TSU). Also in the 2nd year we will run the 1st year and 2nd year integrated curricula in UA and AZ U. In the 3rd year we will roll out curricula in UA and AZ. Iterative evaluation will be built in to take place as an integral part of years 2 and 3. Results of project will be disseminated among Consortium members and all medical schools in PC. Implementation and results of the project will be evaluated by the project partners and national governments. The outputs of the project will be recommended as a model for introducing modern undergraduate medical education in other post-Soviet countries.
