CLINICAL TROPICAL MEDICINE COURSE:
Registration is open for the 9th annual
International Short Course in Clinical Tropical Medicine at the Christian
Medical College in Vellore, India.
The 2 week course provides an intense, high quality learning
opportunity in an endemic location. It has been highly successful in providing
Indian and Western physicians with a venue to interact with each other
while acquiring new skills through a combined clinical, laboratory and lecture-based
course. There are daily bedside rounds, as well as visits to community outreach
The course dates this year will be November 16th
-28th 2015. For more information, please visit http://www.cmctropmed.com/
The course is a non-profit collaboration among the Christian
Medical College, the University of Bergen, and McGill University.
THE REMEDY CLUB
REMEDY, or Recovered Medical Equipment for
the Developing World, both reduces needless waste by area hospitals
and acts to meet the equipment needs of healthcare projects in
resource-poor settings throughout the world.
As hospitals respond to fluctuating demands for select materials, excess
supplies are routinely thrown away despite still being completely functional.
REMEDY partners with the hospital inventory departments to redirect quality
supplies from the discard pile to medical and scientific outreach projects in the
Einstein community. With everything from surplus HEPA masks (remember the bird
flu scare?) to overstocked arm-slings, EKG electrodes, foley catheters,
instrument trays, and blood collection tubes, REMEDY's inventory is diverse
enough to assist most projects. These supplies are available at no charge to
all Einstein students, faculty, and staff planning work abroad.
projects and collaborations we supply are diverse, from roadside clinics and
monasteries in Myanmar to a pediatric oncology ward in Iraq. Other recent
destinations for our supplies include regional hospitals in Peru and the
earthquake-stricken Phillipines, as well as a rural rehab clinic in El
Salvador. We look forward to seeing where our colleagues will travel next! Contact the Remedy Club at: Einstein REMEDY <firstname.lastname@example.org>
