The Course

The Humanitarian Medical Aid Course is an educational experience like no other. Developed by Doctors Worldwide, the course is open to all health care professionals who are looking to begin their journey in the complex industry of humanitarian work, and want to make a difference to the world and the lives of others.
The course aims to share knowledge and experiences, encourage debate, promote reflection as well as have a good time networking, while introducing concepts around humanitarian medical
emergencies and longer-term health development programmes.
This isn’t some run-of-the-mill didactic study day, or technical pre-deployment skills training. It is a course made rich by our faculty, and your participation.

    Hi is the course appropriate for optometrists and other allied health care professionals too?

      Hi, thank you for your query, yes the course helps to give context particularly for health projects. Open to all healthcare professionals.

      The course is about medical humanitarian work and the examples used will be medical. Hope to see you there, any further questions please ask.

    I went on this course previously, a few years ago, and just came across if again by chance. I would just like to say this is a fantastic course with well organised and inspirational speakers who talk with a wealth of experience. Highly recommended.
