Creating social accountability in an institute teaching Global Health Education: A Critical inquiry into Curriculum Co-design through partnership with a London-Based Voluntary Sector Organisations.


This research explores Imperial College London’s innovative approach to global health education, focusing on disrupting power dynamics and fostering social accountability. Through observing medical students over a year, it examines the impact of the global health curriculum on attitudes and professional development, addressing a literature gap. The study delves into community group projects, assessing the role of the educational institution in shaping perspectives of the students and the local communities, whilst promoting social awareness. Additionally, it scrutinises partnership dynamics between the university and local organisations, which offer an insight into co-producing resources for increased social awareness. The results hold significance as they may have the ability to impact curriculum development, educational policies, and the broader discourse on global health education’s role in cultivating social accountability among medical professionals.
