We are pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Brazil-FAIMER Regional Institute.
The Brazil-FAIMER Regional Institute is a two-year part-time fellowship program designed for health professions faculty from Latin America who have the potential to play a key role in improving medical education at their schools. The program, conducted in Portuguese, is uniquely designed to teach education methods and leadership skills, as well as to develop strong professional bonds with other medical educators in the region. Residential sessions take place in Fortaleza, Brazil. The first residential session will be held from February 1 to 10, 2007. A proposal for a curriculum innovation project, supported by the applicant’s school, is required for consideration, and projects that demonstrate a link to improved health in the community will be given higher priority.
Deadline for application submission is December 8, 2006 (midnight, Brazil time).
