Medical Education

Education of medical professionals is also part of Medical Missionaries’ mission.  Every other year, we organize and host a symposium for practicing medical workers in the U.S.  The symposium consists of lectures by noted national experts on relevant topics (e.g., tropical medicine) and practical sessions on applications that can be used in the field with limited resources. 

Additional education is provided to foreign medical professionals by visiting team members as they travel to needy countries.  The visiting team members demonstrate new techniques and work side-by-side with the local medical staff.

In 2006, Medical Missionaries extended its education program to pre-med students by instituting a Global Health Fellowship Program at the clinic in Thomassique, Haiti.  Two pre-med students are chosen each year, after a nationwide search and screening process, to work for one year in the clinic.  The first year’s Fellows came from Princeton.  They have now graduated medical school and are in their residencies.  Subsequent Fellows have come from Duke University, Stanford, Washington University, Temple, Columbia, Bryn Mawr, and other top-notch universities.
