Monash Medicine Curriculum Conference 2018

28 May 2018

About the conference

The Monash Medicine Curriculum Conference (MMCC) aims to provide an annual forum for key Monash Medicine stakeholders to get together to share curriculum successes and consider the ongoing quality enhancement of the curriculum.

Through the MMCC, we will together: (a) develop a better understanding of how the different parts of the curriculum fit together (i.e. horizontal and vertical integration); (b) share best practice across the curriculum; (c) discuss curriculum challenges in order to develop solutions; (d) build relationships with other curriculum stakeholders to enhance curriculum integration; and (e) develop educational capabilities through faculty development.

The MMCC is an annual forum for key distributed stakeholders in the Monash Medicine Curriculum including educational leaders, clinical and non-clinical educators, Monash graduates, Monash medical students, professional staff and patients. Included will be stakeholders from across the various and distributed sites, both University-based and clinical schools, in Clayton, Rural Victoria and Malaysia. We expect somewhere in the region of 200 attendees each year.

We look forward to seeing you at the MMCC on 28 May 2018.
