In the challenging world of humanitarian assistance and international development, preparation and training are key to have a good understanding of the circumstances and issues we may face. This course is a great introduction to the field of Humanitarian Aid and is a must for anyone with an interest in humanitarian & development work or volunteering abroad.

Who should attend?
Many of us think about volunteering abroad, and sharing and using our skills to help others in need.  If you want to know what it takes, or would like to find out more about being a humanitarian worker or perhaps a volunteer, then join us on our specially designed course. Now in its seventh year, our course has established itself as a credible introductory training for volunteer deployments. Previous participants have included Health Professionals, Medical Students, Charity & NGO staff, academics and students interested in Public Health and International Development.

Course Overview     
The Doctors Worldwide annual training course is a general introduction to medical humanitarian aid and international development. It maintains a balance between emergency relief and long term developmental issues. The underlying theme is to create an awareness of the ethical minefields of doing humanitarian and medical relief work, learning about the key principles of project management and what you need to know about working with local partners on the ground. This insight enables participants to become more reflective, develop an awareness of the bigger picture and pick up some practical tools and experiences that Doctors Worldwide has learnt over the last decade of working around the world.

A place on this two day course will provide you with:

– Information on some of the key issues and practicalities of working in Medical Relief;
– An understanding of the principles behind Humanitarian Aid & Development work;
– Tools and case studies on how to manage Development Projects;
– 5 CPD points.

Plus, real life Volunteer accounts of what it’s like to work in a humanitarian aid environment. There will also be case study driven workshops to allow for interactive learning.
