European University Cyprus is proud to host the 2nd International Congress of Health Workforce Education and Research. The conference will take place at European University Cyprus from Thursday 9th May 2019 to Friday 10th May 2019. Hosted in collaboration with the School of Medicine at European University Cyprus, the International Network for Health Workforce Education holds its Congress once a year and it is the prime meeting place for international health workforce educators, researchers and policy makers.
The health workforce faces a number of complex challenges at local, national and global levels. At the global level, a key challenge is the increasing number of mobile healthcare workers who are challenging country-based health workforce education and planning. At a national scale, research projects have identified that education and training must adapt to the skill requirements needed to keep the health workforce compatible with policy plans. Therefore, at a local level, educators must assess their curricula, the approaches they take to teaching and the assessment methods that they implement. The health workforce education community is already attempting to address some of these challenges, for example by moving towards inter-professional teaching, competency based training programmes, and clinical reasoning education techniques, but there is still much work to be done.
Medical Education is of paramount importance for European University Cyprus School of Medicine and this congress signals the alliance between a recognized professional body and EUC Medical School.
