Promoting global health through medical education

     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.
     To eliminate patient suffering caused by unequal levels of physician expertise and on-the-job medical training.
To diminish inefficiencies caused when doctors use patients for training in medical procedures. In order to accomplish this objective we:
–   Design and Distribute free learning materials that help doctors become better teachers and patient-care providers.
–   Implement a multidimensional learner-centric program that respects cultural differences and diverse practice patterns.
–   Educate an international group of motivated instructors skilled in the use of simulation models, role-playing exercises, checklists, assessment tools, problem-based learning, step-by-step training, interactive slide presentations, videos, and competency measures.

Competency-based training is our philosophy
