Because FAIMER DL provides comprehensive evidence-based training in health professions education with an emphasis on accreditation and assessment, as well as a focus on implementing real and lasting health care improvements, the program offers a wide range of benefits to individual educators, health professions schools, and organizations committed to quality assurance and accreditation in the health professions.

Don’t Take it From Us…

The FAIMER Distance Learning model has a proven track record of success and has garnered positive reviews, not only from participants, but from an independent review of distance learning programs.

Distance Learning that Works

A 2011 report from the London International Development Centre (LIDC) cited FAIMER’s distance learning programs as examples of effective educational models that incorporate distance learning. Authored by Chris Joynes, “Distance Learning for Health: What Works” presented findings from a global review of distance learning programs for medical professionals in low- and middle-income countries. The report was launched at the February 23, 2011 LIDC-3ie seminar “What works in international development? Internet-based medical education: findings and lessons from a realist review.”

What Our Participants Have to Say…

“Excellent course content; well-organized and easy to understand.”

“The program allows flexibility. You are given a module and you get a bit of time to fit it into your schedule. I think that’s very important.”

“I am really amazed at the way the program is designed. Although I have worked in medical education for 10 years already, the program makes me work and, more importantly, think.”

“The availability of faculty is important to me. If I ever have a question I can always email or post a question on the forum.”

“The forum is a great learning tool and I learned much from both the instructors and my fellow students.”

“I am now more confident and knowledgeable in the happenings in medical education at an international level.”
