FAR Further Connects Armenia’s Doctors Through Monthly Briefings

As another way to support Armenia’s healthcare providers, FAR recently launched monthly health briefings for current and former CME doctors throughout Armenia and Artsakh. 

The roughly 45-minute virtual meetings are coordinated by FAR’s Healthcare Program team and led by Dr. Gevorg Yaghjyan, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and member of FAR’s Fellowship Alumni Association (FARFAA), the group that initiated the CME program. Meetings will be held once a month, during which doctors will discuss specifically selected topics.

The briefings chiefly consist of short presentations followed by a Q&A format. The first, which was conducted via Zoom at the beginning of July, focused on COVID-19 as well as on the other problems that keep Armenia’s healthcare system on edge, including Kawasaki Disease, asthma and pneumonia.  

More than 80 participants stressed the importance of the 45-minute-gathering to not only share news but also better utilize lessons learned from their respective experiences.

“Professionalism is not taught in the medical university; we become professionals on our own and being professional means sharing your knowledge and skills with your colleagues,” said Dr. Yaghjyan.
