Trained the next generation of clinical educators
We are working closely with the national hospital, Hospital Nasional Guido Valadares, to develop their ability to deliver education.
We know that with a larger cohort of clinical educators Timor-Leste will be well on its way to sustainable, quality healthcare.
So far we have:
Trained 10 clinical educators
Who we work with on this program?

After graduating the first cohort of doctors through our family medicine program, we are currently working to support our graduates.
We are in conversation with the Timor-Leste ministry of health on how we can best support the growing number of Timorese doctors in family medicine education in the future.
