FAIMER is now inviting applications for the 2017 Projects That Work competition! FAIMER will sponsor a representative of up to five selected projects to attend the 2017 annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). The 2017 conference, which will feature the World Summit on Social Accountability, will be held April 8-12, 2017, in Hammamet, Tunisia. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.
The Projects That Work competition, now in its fifth year, is sponsored by FAIMER as part of the annual Network: TUFH conference. This year the Projects That Work competition will showcase projects that have been successfully addressing missions related to the 2017 conference theme, Improving the Impact of Educational Institutions on People’s Health, for three years or longer. The Projects That Work initiative recognizes excellent projects that have succeeded beyond initial implementation and have had a significant impact on health, the community, or the school, in order to encourage the development, implementation, and dissemination of more such projects.
Applications will be considered by a distinguished group of international reviewers with a wide variety of expertise in health professions education. Detailed information on selection criteria can be found here.
