Elective Rotation: Teaching at the Myanmar College of Family Medicine
Location: Myanmar (Burma)
I worked with the Myanmar GP society to create and teach a course in Medical English, communication skills and EBM. This course was a pilot project for the Myanmar College of Family Medicine. The long term goal is to create a primary care training program for Burmese physicians since there is currently no effective primary care residency equivalent. There may be significant teaching opportunities going forward as the project develops.
