Call for papers: Special issue "Communicative and social competencies" by GMS Journal for Medical Education

Teaching communicative and social competencies has become a part of the education offered at practically every medical school and educational institution focused on healthcare professions in the past 15 years.

How is this development perceived at the educational institutions? Different curricula have been developed by the various schools. Where has a special focus been placed, what are the similarities, and which role does the general organizational structure of the curriculum or university play? What factors determine success? What are the barriers to implementing a curriculum? What can we learn from the experience gathered at individual institutions? What interprofessional approaches are available?

Authors are invited to submit articles for a special issue of the GMS Journal for Medical Education on the topic "Communicative and social competencies". The issue provides a forum in which specific developments can be reported and knowledge can be shared.

Original papers, projects, reviews, practical or empirical reports by representatives of all healthcare professions are welcome.

The submission deadline is 15 February 2020.
