The article reports that the motion to add global health training in the core curriculum of medical education failed to pass at the Canadian Medical Association's (CMA) 144th annual general meeting in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador on August 24, 2011. Pediatrics resident Roona Sinha suggests that the result, in which only 48% of delegates supported the motion, could be because many people misunderstand the meaning of global health. It notes other motions that were accepted in the meeting.
