2008 Brazil-FAIMER Regional Institute

Posted on Categories Fellows, Regional InstitutesTags ,

Twenty-five new Fellows were added to the ranks of the Brazil-FAIMER Regional Institute, as the second year of the program got underway. When last year’s Fellows returned to work with the new Fellows, the assembled group of 50 became the largest FAIMER Regional Institute overlap session to date. An educator from the medical school in Angola was funded by the Ministry of Health to observe the program. Feedback from participants, as well as local and international faculty, indicates that the three-week program was a tremendous success. During the overlap period, one day was devoted to a National Medical Education (NME) event, which strategically focused on collaboration between the Association of Brazilian Medical Schools (ABEM), the Ministry of Health, and the Brazil-FAIMER Regional Institute.
