Linking Social Entrepreneur Education to Strengthen A Medical School’s Social Accountability Mission
Social entrepreneurship education is an emerging concept that provides a promising approach to educate future physicians to do more in solving public health and societal problems. However, misperception among medical teachers and managers in medical schools about social entrepreneurship education sometimes becomes a serious obstacle that hinders its potential as an opportunity to offer different ways of bringing about social change. We found in our project that social entrepreneurship education in medical schools had an intertextuality connection with social accountability for medical schools which has been promoted by WHO since 1995. In this article we would share our experience in delivering social entrepreneurship education in medical school as a way to capitalize on the social accountability vision of institutes by using an appreciative co-production approach.
