This report from an expert panel jointly convened by the Association of American Medical Colleges and Association of Schools of Public Health identifies competencies to prepare culturally competent practitioners appropriate for students in both medicine and public health. This unique interprofessional expert panel identified competencies designed to enable faculty in medical schools and graduate schools/programs of public health to standardize curricula, benchmark student performance, and prepare graduates for culturally competent practice. The panel additionally provided recommendations for embedding cultural competence education within and across curricula of medicine and public health, highlights of exemplary case studies, and a road map for the future. The panel identifies knowledge (cognitive competencies), attitudes (values/beliefs competencies), and skills (practice competencies) for cultural competencies common to medical and public health students.
