INMED offers state-of-the-art healthcare courses that supply formative information to guide effective healthcare in low-resource and cross-cultural settings.
A hybrid course is a blend of online learning with face-to-face instruction. INMED currently offers three comprehensive hybrid courses, the International Medicine & Public Health Hybrid Course, the International Nursing & Public Health Hybrid Course, and the International Public Health Hybrid Course. Each is fully accredited for CME and CE. Completion of the respective Hybrid Course is an essential qualification towards earning the INMED Diploma in International Medicine & Public Health (DIMPH), INMED Diploma in International Nursing & Public Health, or the INMED Diploma in International Public Health (DIPH).
INMED offers a growing series of short, online, self-paced courses in the core subjects of international health. These courses make use of interactive questions and short videos. Included is a pre-test, post-test, evaluation, and certificate of completion. Participants may complete these courses over a period of up to 180 days. Each course is accredited for CME and CE. Requesting an extension of the course (over the 180 days) requires re-payment. Learn more about INMED Self-Paced Courses.
Some one million newborns die each year from birth asphyxia, the inability to breathe, chiefly in resource-limited locations. Helping Babies Breathe (HBB) is a newborn resuscitation model designed to save lives in such settings. The INMED HBB Master Trainer Course is a hands-on experience that equips participants with basic newborn resuscitation skills, emphasizing respiratory support, as well as the orientation to partner with local health leaders to transfer these skills to birth attendants. Included with the course purchase is the HBB NeoNatalie Newborn Simulator and instructional flip chart for use when teaching HBB. This course is accredited for 6 hours of both CME and CE.
Quality medical care in low-resource settings is often hampered by lack of objective clinical information. Ultrasound is a particularly useful technology, providing vital data to support patient care decision-making. The INMED Ultrasound for Primary Care Course is a hybrid course that combines online preparation with in-classroom, hands-on skills in non-obstetric ultrasound imaging. Each participant will be supervised in learning ultrasound techniques, equipment control, normal scan planes, and scan interpretation. This course is accredited for 6 hours of CME.
