European core curriculum--the students' perspective, Bristol, UK, 10 July 2006.


The International Federation of Medical Students' Associations (IFMSA) and the European Medical Students' Association (EMSA) are proud to present the first outcome-based core curriculum for medicine from the perspective of the medical students of Europe. It covers 76 learning outcomes grouped around nine domains: (1) Clinical Skills, (2) Communication, (3) Critical Thinking, (4) Health in Society, (5) Lifelong Learning, (6) Professionalism-Attitudes, Responsibilities, and Self-development, (7) Teaching, (8) Teamwork, and (9) Theoretical knowledge. The statement is a result of a long process of international workshops, conferences, and discussions on numerous meetings for medical students and health-care professionals all over Europe. Previous conferences resulted in widely recognized policy statements on the 'Bologna Declaration and Medical Education' and 'Quality Assurance in Medical Schools' (Westbye 2004; IFMSA/EMSA 2005). We hope that our European core curriculum from the students' perspective may serve as a foundation for the development of outcome-based core curricula all over Europe, enhancing mobility of students and graduates and promoting excellent health care in the future.
