    Hey guys, I was working on my secondary for MCO and am really trying to finish tonight....they have this question on cultural comptence: "Medical College of Ohio is committed to excellenice in education which prepares graduates to deliver quality health care. Developing cultural competence is an important goal in our curriculum. Cultural competence is defined as an awareness, understanding and ability to use specific methods to deal effectively with cultural issues and its role in health and health care. Please discuss a life experience in which you feel you demonstrated cultural competence."

    Im not quite sure what type of example they are looking for.
    I work in the ER and deal with culturally diverse people all the time...but Im not sure I used " specific methods" to deal with them...except for getting a translator

    Please help with some feedback!!!! I would really really appreciate it!! Especially if u applied to this school and dealt with the question so might know what they are looking for:):)
    Thanks a lot guys:)

    I talked about my experience going down with doctors to Ensenada, Mexico. Must have helped cause I just interviewed there. Good luck.
