Provision of medical care in low-resource settings is extremely challenging. This is especially true for healthcare professionals accustomed to an abundance of consultants, diagnostics, imaging, medications, and interventions. This course will provide learners a review of mostly commonly needed essential clinical skills. Included are hands-on skills sessions covering wound care and suturing, extremity trauma and immobilization/casting, tropical fever evaluation, blood and stool pathogen analysis, community health survey techniques, and basic and advanced cardiac life support for both children and adults.
This is a hybrid learning experience that combines online preparation in followed by a one-day, in-classroom event to master hands-on skills and assess achievements. Academic credit earned is 1 credit hour.
