S5 : Collaboration in medical education in Asia
   Educating learners in a medical school requires a lot of resources in terms of patients, instruments, educational media, classroom, laboratory, wards, and clinics. Providing proper educational experience to learners in all levels and all specialties by teaching in only one medical school is usually inadequate. Collaboration between schools in the national and international levels is an important mechanism that many medical schools used to expand learners’ experience. In this session, speakers from Singapore, Vietnam, China, and Thailand will share their experience in developing international level of medical school collaboration. Audience will learn about proper ways to set up such collaboration.
