The eighth biennial Leaders in Indigenous Medical Education (LIME) Network Connection will be held in Christchurch, Aotearoa/New Zealand. This event will be hosted by The University of Otago.
The LIME Connection Scientific Committee, along with Māori elder, Te Marino Lenihan and Tania Huria, have developed the whakatauki (theme for the conference). Pouhine Poutama speaks to vertical and horizontal integration of knowledge, understanding and perspective (i.e. curriculum) and expresses, through deliberate juxtaposition, the complimentary and essential union of Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives, knowledge and understanding. Vertical integration refers to the continuum of teaching and learning from Universities to Specialisation, while horizontal refers to connection and collaboration across all Health Sciences.
The theme this year is ‘Pouhine Poutama: Embedding Indigenous Health Education‘ and more information on the theme can be found here along with information on Keynote Speakers and Abstract submissions. Please note Abstract submissions close 9 April 2019.
Registrations to attend the conference are due to open early March via Eventbrite.
