Promoting global health through medical education


OUR MISSION is clear: we eliminate variations in training within and between institutions, regions, and countries so patients everywhere have access to expertly-performed bronchoscopy and other medical procedures.

WE BELIEVE in the democratization of knowledge. All learning materials on this website are free. All royalties from books on Amazon are used for educational and humanitarian programs.

–   We use simulation models, role-playing exercises, case-based analysis, inverted classrooms, step-by-step instruction, and competency-based materials to teach health care professionals and medical educators.
–  Our learner-centric training programs respect diversty and cultural differences. They are tailored to the specific needs of a health care institution, region, or country.
–  We design and deliver competency-based learning materials and coach medical professionals on their use.
–  Our Certified and Master instructors have a lifetime of teaching experience.  We are particularly committed to improving medical education and patient care in less developed countries.
