GSMC-FAIMER Regional Institute Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary

Posted on Categories Regional InstitutesTags , , ,

book commemorating the 10th anniversary of the GSMC-FAIMER Regional InstituteIn June 2014, the GSMC-FAIMER Regional Institute welcomed its 10th class of Fellows and celebrated this important milestone at Seth G.S. Medical College in Mumbai, India. GSMC-FAIMER, the first of FAIMER’s Regional Institutes to be developed, was launched in 2005. A total of 175 health professions educators from seven countries have participated in the fellowship program, under the direction of Dr. Avinash Supe, Professor and Head of the Department of Surgical Gastroenterology at King Edward Memorial Hospital and a FAIMER Institute 2002 Fellow. Many alumni returned to join current fellows, faculty, and special guests for the 10-year anniversary celebrations.

To commemorate the occasion, GSMC-FAIMER faculty members Sucheta Dandekar (PHIL 2010) and Chinmay Shah (GSMC 2008) produced a book entitled Celebrating 10 Years of Professional Development (PDF – 8 MB). The book includes photos and reflections from faculty and Fellows, and is a testament to the impact the GSMC-FAIMER fellowship program has had. According to Dr. Supe, “The continuous engagement of participants and the impact of the projects on local communities have been tremendous.”

FAIMER Regional Institutes are modeled on the curriculum of the flagship FAIMER Institute fellowship program held each year in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All of the programs include both residential and distance learning sessions. To date there are six Regional Institutes: three in India, one in Brazil, one in Sub-Saharan Africa, and one in China. Two new programs, one in Colombia and another in India, are currently being planned for launch in 2015. Visit the Regional Initiatives page of this website for more information.
