RCSI delegates meet in Dublin
A delegation from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland – Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI Bahrain) travelled to Dublin in Ireland for the eighth annual RCSI International Education Forum (IEF). Among the attendees were colleagues from RCSI campuses in Bahrain, Dublin and Malaysia, who came together to discuss innovations and challenges within shared programmes.
This year’s event, which included a half-day ‘Ed-i-Med’ symposium, was held at RCSI’s headquarters in Dublin City Centre and focused on the theme of ‘Transforming Healthcare Education Project (THEP).’ Since its inception in 2012, the IEF has become an integral component of RCSI’s curriculum and assessment development, as it seeks to enhance initiatives across its international campuses.
The week-long event featured presentations, keynote speeches and interactive workshops, along with a demonstration of latest virtual reality technology. The conference included open sessions focused on faculty-wide strategies; curriculum; assessments and planning, with international experts and guests invited to engage with faculty to share their experiences and perspectives and facilitate discussion.
