Are we there yet? Monitoring engagement with health, climate change and other environmental determinants of health in the medical curriculum. The Australian and New Zealand experience
Presenters: Lynne Madden, University of Notre Dame, Sydney & Michelle McLean, the Medical Programme, Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia

To demonstrate how change can be achieved in different environments by working collegially across regional medical schools. The Medical Deans of Australia and New Zealand have established a Climate Change and Health Working Group to address climate change and health in the curriculum. By working collegially across medical schools, we are demonstrating that more can be achieved by supporting each other and at scale and pace. We believe that this offers a model for medical education in other countries as well as other health professional groups.

Professor Michelle McLean
Medical Education, Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine, Bond University, Australia. Fellow: Association of Medical Education in Europe (AMEE). From January 2019, my passion for the environment has led me into Planetary Health, where I have been working nationally and internationally to advance environmental sustainability in health professions education. Over the last few years, my research has largely revolved around student experiences in different parts of their training (e.g. the transition to the clinical environment, role models, the impact of their gender, etc.) and professional identity. More recently, most of my work is in environmental sustainability in health professions education.
