[CME]: FAR Explores Medical Education Opportunity in Nagorno-Karabagh.

July 26, 2010

Dr. Hambartsum Simonyan, coordinator of FAR’s health programs, and Yerevan State Medical University Vice Rector Dr. Gevorg Yaghjyan, made a trip to Karabagh last week to visit with the new Minister of Health Dr. Sergey Movesesyan, and explore the opportunities for cooperation between the ministry, FAR, and YSMU. Both doctors made presentations about FAR’s Continuing Medical Education programs and Salzburg International Medical Seminars to physicians from hospitals, clinics, and maternity wards throughout Stepanakert.

In addition, the doctors organized visits to the Pediatric hospital in Stepanakert and general hospital in Shushi. They also stopped in Goris to meet with four YSMU residents and eight medical students who are spending their summer there.

Through these efforts, FAR and YSMU hope to interest more doctors in their programs and improve overall quality of healthcare in the provinces.
