FAIMER's Fellowship Programs

FAIMER's fellowship programs are targeted to international health professions education faculty who have the potential to play key roles in improving education in their schools.

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.

    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.
