Promoting global health through medical education

WE ARE A TRANSNATIONAL GROUP OF MEDICAL EDUCATORS
     Bronchoscopy International Foundation for the Advancement of Medicine promotes global health through medical education.  Our goal is to eliminate patient suffering caused by inadequately trained doctors. Our experts conduct training programs around the world in order to assure equal access to knowledge and technical skill regardless of where chest physicians and airway surgeons practice.
MISSION
     To eliminate patient suffering caused by unequal levels of physician expertise and on-the-job medical training.
OBJECTIVES
–   To design learning materials that help doctors become better teachers and patient-care providers.
–   To promote the use of a multidimensional curriculum that encompasses cultural differences and individual practice biases.
–   To build an international group of certified master instructors skilled in the use of motivational presentation techniques, procedure-based simulation, checklists, problem-based learning tools, step-by-step instructional methods, and objective measures of competency.

Testing is to teaching, what tasting is to cooking. Objective, nonjudgmental skill assessments reinforce a learner’s strengths and identify correctable weaknesses.
