Medical Education Curriculum Mapping Project with Dr. Laura Beaton and Grace Simpson

Season 1, Ep. 18

In this episode we talk to Grace and Laura about the medical curriculum mapping project. It is imperative that educating the medical workforce to understand, address and mitigate the health effects of climate change is integrated into all levels of medical education. DEA medical students and doctors co-developed a curriculum resource that maps climate change and health to the classically used organ-system teaching structure. It is an easy-to-use tool for medical educators to locate clinically relevant teaching points in each major body system. Hear about how it was developed, what it covers, and how to use this fantastic resource.
