UT Health IRC Presents: Difficult Dialogues: Transforming International Experience into Multicultural Citizenship
Event Date & TimeNovember 9, 2021
International programs do more than give a global context to medical practice. They also provide an opportunity for students (and faculty) to develop some skills in intercultural communication — e.g., analyzing cultural context, taking perspective, and adapting behavior. Those skills are not just useful abroad; they are also exactly what we need for living peacefully and productively in a multicultural society. This presentation and discussion will suggest how to use intercultural learning to participate in the “difficult dialogues” of making a multicultural society work.
