PRIME has had the honour to teach in around 30 countries in all five continents. We do not evangelise, but put God's values within the core of academic medical truth: caring for and valuing the sufferer's spirit, and also the doctor's. God has blessed us richly. For example, over 2,500 enjoyed courses in Romania; we have a regular commitment to the top teaching hospital in Moscow and have been asked to advise on the obligatory retraining of Moscow GPs as a pilot for all Russia; many teams have been to Nepal; and the palliative care course has spread to India where hundreds are being trained to teach it. Here in the UK such input into medical teaching is just as necessary.
If you are involved in any way in teaching any specialty at any level, we would love to see you in Austria where PRIME is running the Education Stream of the ICMDA Eurasia conference. See www.icmda2008.archae.at/main.php?navi=Preconference#PRIME. In October, we have a conference in Lisbon, in English and Portuguese, arranged by PRIME Portugal. Most speakers are PRIME tutors and many leading health professionals from Portugal will be present. Contact email@example.com
Please join us, perhaps as a travelling tutor, a thinker and planner of curricula, or as a donor. We need at least a further £50,000 pa to continue, even before developing exciting ideas. The potential is extraordinary, the growth exponential, the responsibility great. Please stand with us in any way you can. Thank you!
