Collaboration for Host Perspectives on Global Health Competencies
The Collaboration for Host Perspectives on Global Health Competencies is a group of community and academically-based researchers from 9 countries collaborating to investigate the opinions of host faculty, staff, and community members in countries across the socioeconomic spectrum who host visiting students and trainees from other countries at their healthcare and public health facilities (including hospitals, NGOs, community development organizations, clinics, and mobile outreach). The goal is to understand host perspectives of competencies, learning objectives, and other aspects of what is important for students and trainees from other countries to learn.
To date, many competency efforts originate in the "Global North" or High Income Countries which often send students and trainees abroad for electives, rotations, internships, service-learning and fieldwork. This study aims to augment these competency sets with the viewpoint of local host communities. This study builds on the recently published interprofessional global health competencies and enables host perspectives on these competencies and beyond. Please consider distributing this research to your partners, colleagues, and others worldwide that host visiting students/trainees.
