MEDRIX UPDATE:

By April 29, 2024No Comments

MEDRIX focuses on training young doctors and especially those working under challenging circumstances in the rural areas.

Recently MEDRIX sponsored training of doctors for the Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses course. Four of the twelve doctors who completed the 11-day course were from hospitals in the rural areas of the province. The average age of the doctors was 29.5 years; the youngest being 25.

In the IMCI course 60% of the time is in the classroom and 40% is actual practice with pediatric patients in the provincial hospital – combining both theory and hands-on training.

Here are some photos of the doctors studying and practicing.

Thanks to all who donated to support this work. If you missed this opportunity, we will be fund-raising for another class in the fall.
