INMED’s 27th International Medicine And Public Health Course: 2016 Kirksville MO
November 11th, 2016 by INMED
I just enjoyed a terrific weekend with these 21 medical students at AT Still University/Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. Ten weeks ago they began a structured, aggressive study of paramount global health issues, including the impact of military conflict, today’s mushrooming refugee crisis, and the perils and privileges of launching their own international healthcare careers.
Following this heavy diet of cognitive information consumption and issues digestion, we meet in person for two days of intensive exercise: medicine and public health exams, a poverty meal, skills workshops in wound care, complicated obstetrics, newborn resuscitation, and disaster management and community health survey simulations.
What’s next for these remarkably bright and motivated healthcare learners? Such an intense learning experience is best soon followed by real-life experience. INMED makes this available through our Diploma offerings in International Medicine (DIMPH) & International Public Health (DIPH), which includes an international service-learning experience at an INMED Training Site in one of 25 nations. Watch out for inspiring individuals like these INMED grads, sharing hope and skill among our world’s most humble people.
