Event summary: The Humanitarian Medical Aid Course is an educational experience like no other. Developed by Doctors Worldwide faculty and based on our 20+ years of experience in the development and emergency field, the institutional learning of sending volunteers overseas, and the questions and experiences this has evoked, the course is now in its fourteenth year. Having delivered to hundreds of people to date, and after a break due to COVID-19, the course is now open again to all healthcare professionals who are looking to begin their journey in the complex industry of humanitarian work, and want to make a difference to the world and the lives of others.
The course aims to share knowledge and experiences, encourage debate, promote reflection as well as have a good time networking, while introducing concepts around humanitarian medical emergencies and longer-term health development programmes.
