A Team of 12 Medical educators from Ayder (4 Anesthesiologists, 4 Anesthetists, 2 Obstetricians, 1 Pediatrician, 1 Pediatric Surgeon) have taken a “Training of the trainers course on Simulation-based education” from September 19-26, 2023.
It was given in Addis Ababa along with some other educators from Bahirdar and Addis Ababa Universities.
This Simulation training is part of an ongoing “Training of the trainers course on Medical education” another part of which is being given online via zoom conference to Mekelle University and Addis Ababa University Educators.
The training was delivered and fully sponsored by ImPACT Africa(Improving perioperative anesthesia care and training).
ImPACT Africa(an international project from Vanderbilt university that works to advance anesthesia training and service in Africa) has been one of our close partners with a lot of accomplishments on the anesthesia service and training in our college for the last five years.
We congratulate the trainees, and are Very thankful to ImPACT Africa.
The training was winded-up with drafting an annual plan to run simulation based education sessions to Health science students.
We wish both trainings will make a difference in the way we teach our trainees.
The Spanish ambassador to Ethiopia, his excellency Mr Manuel Salazar Palma, the head of Spanish Cooperation Mr Mario Fanjul Benitez and Project Manager for Health Ms Thais Gonzalez Capella have paid a visit to @Ayder hospital today and discussed on ways to improve the services in the hospital through aid and training.
A training on 'psychosocial trauma and recovery was given to the students' of Ayder College of Health Sciences, Mekelle University
It is known that the students of Mekelle University, College of Health Sciences were out of school for a long time following the war.
The psychological impact of the war is immense. Thus, training in mental health and psychosocial support is highly needed. Considering this the College of Health Sciences has arranged two days of training for the students in collaboration with a volunteer Tigrayan diaspora called Saba.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to Saba, trainers, coordinators, and others involved.
As the need is very high, we hope others will provide similar training to our students.
