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.
OBJECTIVE
To diminish inefficiencies caused when doctors use patients for training in medical procedures. In order to accomplish this objective we:
–   Design and Distribute learning materials to help doctors become better teachers and patient-care providers.
–   Implement a structured multidimensional and learner-centric program that takes into consideration cultural differences and diverse medical practice patterns.
–   Educate 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 skill assessments reinforce a learner’s strengths and identify correctable weaknesses.
