Abstract

Education at the University of Namibia, School of Medicine and School of Pharmacy relies on a community-centred curriculum. The aim is to nurture "7-star" doctors and pharmacists that will address the current social and health needs within the country. A sound understanding of the interplay between learning and the learning environment is said to improve interprofessional educational activities. This relationship is dependent on constrictive alignment of not only the aspects of pedagogy, but also that of educational leadership in context of the current and social health needs. In this report, we reflect on the interprofessional-learning environment that was created out of necessity within a Namibian context.
