The available literature shows that Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) elements in medical curricula are not standardized and that medical doctors hardly receive effective or any training at all. This results in a lack of appropriate competencies to deal with IPV. We study to identify ways to improve curricula on IPV content to enhance prevention and medical care in Mozambique. The results of this study are a promising complement of the analysis of the competencies learned by the medical students in Mozambique with the current curriculum. The research thus provides justification for developing a competency-based interprofessional curriculum to improve communication skills in IPV in medical school’s curriculum in Mozambique.
