Summer School in Primary Care in Ljubljana

We welcome international students of medicine and health systems to the first summer school of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ljubljana in cooperation with the Radboud University Medical Center and the University of Crete:

Cultural Competences, Doctor-Patient Communication, and Minority Health

The increase in migration and the general globalization of healthcare has resulted in a need for students and future doctors to be able to communicate effectively, not only in their own language and culture, but also with people with other languages and cultural norms. This has led to the importance of developing cultural competency. It is one of the key features of this program, which examines the extent to which our practice is evidence-based and how culturally determined it is.
