Healthcare education is the new frontier of medical missions. Do you teach or are you planning to teach in an international medical school, residency, or other healthcare training program?

This workshop will help you provide quality academics while navigating cultural considerations.

*Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, this workshop will not be held live, in-person in 2020. We are working with the co-sponsoring organizations to place the content online in an enduring format. Please watch this page for updates. Contact Laura Smelter, [email protected], 903-962-4000 ext 3 with questions. We hope and pray to resume live, in-person training that incorporates the online content in the near future.
