FAIMER is pleased to announce that the application deadline for the 2014 Projects That Work competition has been extended through July 15, 2014.
FAIMER will sponsor a representative of up to five selected projects to attend the 2014 Network: Towards Unity for Health conference in Fortaleza, Brazil, November 19-23, 2014. This year the Projects That Work competition will showcase projects that have been successfully addressing missions related to the 2014 conference theme, “Strengthening Health Professions Education as a Policy to Improve Health,” for three years or longer. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
The intent of the Projects That Work initiative is to recognize excellent projects that have succeeded beyond initial implementation and have had a significant impact on health, the community, or the school, as well as to encourage the development, implementation, and dissemination of more such projects.
