An extension of the MMI course—designed specifically for physicians, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners—this five-day course provides alternative diagnostic and treatment principles for those who choose to work in remote, developing areas where sophisticated instrumentation and lab tests are not available. A valuable course for short and long-term medical missionaries.
The training consists of detailed presentations of the most common diseases
seen in third world settings and emphasizes diagnosis and treatment. This
would include not only the major killers like malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS,
but also many other tropical diseases and conditions not usually seen in
western medicine. Other topics such as critical childbirth and women's issues,
international drug options, complications of malnutrition and anemia, common
dental issues facing physicians, and barriers to best practices in global health
missions will also be discussed. In addition to formal didactic presentations
and discussion students will work independently to successfully complete a
series of well-crafted case studies.
