Family Medicine Tutor Training Workshop

What : to train existing PRIME Primary Care Tutors to be able to deliver teaching to support a new two year Diploma in Family Medicine being launched in Cambodia, Nigeria and Uganda.

When : Wednesday 22nd - Friday 24th April 2020

Where :Â Kings Centre, Northampton, UK


Background:

For some years CMC Vellore have been running a two Year Family Medicine course in India to train high quality primary care doctors with a view to improving healthcare in more rural and deprived areas of the country. Several PRIME tutors have been involved delivering this by providing teaching over a two week direct contact phase which runs twice a year in India. Person-centred medicine is a foundation of this programme and it has in many ways adopted principles which PRIME espouses. With the support of ICMDA the diploma is now being rolled out to the other countries (Cambodia, Nigeria, Uganda) - initially starting in 2020 with existing trainers. However, more trainers will be needed to provide training in these new countries by next summer. PRIME and ICMDA are hosting a training workshop for anyone interested in finding out more. Rebekah Zecariah, who runs the programme from Vellore, will be coming to the UK along with another colleague to run the two days together with some of the PRIME tutors already involved who will be supporting them during the workshop.

Possible Future Commitment: You would need to be able to commit a minimum of two weeks a year for one of the contact teaching phases, with the option of four weeks to teach on both. This would ideally suit a Primary Care teacher with less PRIME experience, who is able to free up this sort of time and wishes to explore teaching in a foreign environment. The two weeks will only require a minimum of prior planning from attending tutors as the curriculum is well supported by teaching materials and logistics. Accommodation and hospitality will be available on the ground in-country.

Costs: CMC Vellore and ICMDA are subsidising this event but a contribution of £75 would be welcome.
