These programs develop skills that allow participants to serve as resources for their colleagues, institutions, local communities, and global regions.
The programs emphasize education methods, education leadership and management, and development of a community of educators. Participants focus on education innovation projects of their choosing that are supported by their home institutions.
Preference is given to projects where these is a clear link to improving community or population health.
FAIMER's educational programs currently focus on serving health professions educators and institutions in South Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Applications from other regions will be given lower priority.
Implemented projects serve as relevant, local working models for ongoing enhancements in health professions education.
The FAIMER Institute is a two year, part-time fellowship in health professions education methodology and leadership.
It is conducted in four sessions – a residential session in the United States, followed by an eleven-month distance learning and co-mentorship component, a second residential session, and finally another eleven-month distance learning and co-mentoring experience.
The program is uniquely designed to teach education methods and leadership skills, as well as to develop strong professional bonds with other health professions educators around the world.
