International Medical Education

The principal goal of the International Medical Education Program is to develop the linguistic and cultural skills of medical students so they may better be able to serve multicultural and minority patients in Massachusetts. An important educational methodology to achieve this goal is the use of immersion experiences in foreign countries.  These educational experiences promote the development of cultural humility, acquisition of language skills, and learning about indigenous health beliefs and clinical practices. A core curriculum in the program is The Pathway on Serving Underserved and Multicultural Populations, which integrates international and domestic learning opportunities throughout the four years of medical school. In this program, students* have the opportunity of using language and cultural skills learned abroad in clinical and community service with multicultural populations in Massachusetts.
