Cultural Competency in Healthcare

  • Breakout Session
  • Student Building (Block) SMC 301 The Porch
  • November 12 2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

As we see an increasing number of culturally diverse patients in our practices, there is no doubt of the importance of cultural competency in medicine. Specific circumstances and miscommunications have been well documented. But how can we develop an eye to see where a patient’s values and worldview may differ from our own? We will review an approach to cultural competency highlighted by medical missions case studies.
