PCW 14 - ViEW Workshop - The Hidden Curriculum of Health Sciences Education

Stephen May, Carrie Roder and Elizabeth Chan (Royal Veterinary College, University of London, UK); Clare Allen (University of Cambridge, UK)

In students' development as future professionals, a pervasive influence with a high impact is the hidden curriculum. This involves the structure of the organisation in which students learn, and the culture as it emerges in the behaviours of all whom they encounter as a part of their learning journey. Any understanding of the process of enculturation of novices in health care systems and the development of their professional identities must take account of the nature and effect of the hidden curriculum.
