Four doctors from Karabagh are the first participants of a new collaboration between FAR’s Continuing Medical Education Program (CME) and the American Armenian Health Professionals Organization (AAHPO), which is geared toward offering additional medical training specifically to doctors in Nagorno-Karabagh and Javakhk.
Between March 9 and April 1, these four physicians spent time training at leading clinics in Yerevan, participated in various all program events and successfully completed the CME program. Therapists Malvina Badalyan and Alvina Hakobyan, pediatrician Everest Martirosyan and Karine Tarkhanyan, a neonatologist, all spent their training at various medical clinics affiliated with Yerevan State Medical University. The presentation of the graduates’ clinical casework and their official graduation was held at FAR’s offices on March 31 and April 1.
This is the sixth year of CME. More than 255 doctors from Armenia’s rural areas have enhanced their knowledge of modern medical practice through this program since 2005. CME provides the way for these doctors to learn about innovative approaches and methodologies from top healthcare providers in Yerevan free of cost.
