The first participants to take part in a new joint program between FAR’s new Continuing Medical Education Program (CME) and the American Armenian Health Professionals Organization (AAHPO), which is aimed at offering training to doctors in Nagorno-Karabagh and Javakhk, arrived in Yerevan this week. This month’s participants, two therapists, one pediatrician and one neonatologist, yesterday attended an orientation meeting at FAR’s Yerevan office.
“One of the important things is the fact that this partnership has a strategic approach aimed at strengthening the professional network among physicians from Karabagh, Javakhk and Armenia,” FAR’s CME Program Coordinator Doctor Hambartsum Simonyan explained.
Javakhk physicians will join the CME program in April.
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.
