Gender and the New Revised Medical Curriculum (Modellstudiengang)

Ms Ludwig discussing gender in university teaching

Gender and the New Revised Medical Curriculum (Modellstudiengang)
Following systematic efforts across all disciplines, gender aspects and gender-sensitive teaching have become an integral part of the New Revised Medical Curriculum. With the assistance of the Office for Women's Affairs and Equal Opportunities, and thanks to support from the Berlin Equal Opportunities Program (BCP), a new position was created at the Dieter Scheffner Center for Medical Education and Educational Research. This position is responsible for ensuring the implementation of gender-specific measures and gender-oriented teaching as part of the New Revised Medical Curriculum.

Ms Ludwig is responsible for the coordination of all gender- and diversity-related aspects pertaining to teaching and learning.  

Gender- and diversity-sensitive teaching as a marker of quality
Gender-appropriate teaching can result in an overall improvement in teaching and learning, as it provides both teachers and students with the tools necessary to successfully handle, as well as benefit from, social and cultural diversity.
