Patients have been central to medical – health education, but have usually been used to provide rather passive illustrations of interesting conditions or as part of students’ expierental learning. Althought the body of knowledge on patient partnership in the health curriculum is increasing, still a lot of questions, uncentainties remain. How can we engage patients in curriculum development, engage patients as trainers, engage patients in the assessment of students in a meaningfull way? These topics will be addressed by Mathieu Jackson.
