FGM training and education for medical students

Allan Cameron made this Freedom of Information request to University of Exeter

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear University of Exeter,

Please, can you confirm if any training is provided to your medical students during their course on Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and safeguarding surrounding this practice?

Please, can you confirm in what format this training is provided (online training, lectures, clinical skills training, CBL/PBL, anatomy)?

Is any teaching on FGM examinable?

Approximately how many hours are spent on this training throughout a medical degree programme?

If you do not currently provide training on this topic, do you intend to change this in the next few years?

Yours faithfully,

A Cameron
