Dr. Andrew Padmos, Royal College CEO, was appointed a distinguished member of the Faculty of Medicine, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUCC).
“The concern in Mexico, in particular, is the transition from the end of medical school to the beginning of residency. It is important that students have the skills needed to start residency.”
The Royal College has a history of working with our sister colleges in Australia and New Zealand. What is new and noteworthy is that we signed a MOU to formalize and strengthen this bond.
We feel privileged to be in a position to help global partners working in medical education, by sharing our knowledge, experience, best practices and standards.
IMELF is an invitational meeting that brings together global thought leaders, influencers and decision-makers to talk about common issues and trends in medical education, to share ideas and to formulate solutions.
As our international activities increase, I’d like to provide a bit more context on our international (residency) accreditation efforts: what this work entails and its value, both to our partner institutions and to our organization.
