CMCL-FAIMER Regional Institute Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

Posted on Categories Regional InstitutesTags ,

In February 2015, the CMCL-FAIMER Regional Institute welcomed its 10th class of Fellows and celebrated this important milestone at Christian Medical College, Ludhiana (CMCL), in Punjab, India. Many alumni returned to join current Fellows, faculty, and special guests for the anniversary celebrations. On February 8, a day-long program titled “Horizons in Medical Education” was held, featuring ceremonies, presentations, and speeches by distinguished national and international guests and speakers. Themes of the day included faculty development, teaching and assessing professionalism in medical education, competency-based medical education, the art of large group teaching, and organizing a medical education conference, as well as a 10-year look-back on the CMCL-FAIMER program.

To commemorate the anniversary, a book entitled Footprints on Sand: 10 Years of Advancing Education was created by the CMCL-FAIMER faculty and distributed to attendees of the Institute. The book includes reflections and photos from faculty and Fellows, and is a testament to the impact the CMCL-FAIMER program has had.

CMCL-FAIMER, the second of FAIMER’s Regional Institutes to be developed, was launched in 2006 under the direction of Dr. Tejinder Singh, Professor of Pediatrics and Vice Principal at CMCL, and FAIMER Institute 2003 Fellow. Dr. Dinesh Badyal, Professor and Head of the Department of Pharmacology at CMCL, CMCL-FAIMER 2007 Fellow, and FAIMER Institute 2011 Fellow, has since joined Dr. Singh as the program’s Co-Director. A total of 159 health professions educators from six countries have participated in the CMCL-FAIMER program over the past 10 years.
