The article by Anderson and Vanderbilt,1 on improving cultural competence (CC) training in medical schools during clerkship years was read with great interest. We agree that CC is not adequately taught in the current medical curricula. As European medical students we have noticed that this issue is also existent in Europe,2 and would like to offer our suggestion on how to implement this into the existing curriculum.
