Members of ISM&RH are actively involved in educating and training dutch doctors that do the unique specialisation “Global Health and Tropical Medicine”.
Profile of a Doctor in Global Health and Tropical Medicine
After the Medical Doctor Degree a doctor can choose to specialize in Global Health and Tropical Medicine. There is a selection process that selects doctors with interest in this field of work: proven interest by having done internships in a low resource setting, performed research in the field of IH&TM, organizational skills and preferably working experience in a related field.
The training prepares doctors with the competencies needed to work in an international setting, at the cross roads of clinical care and public health, working for disadvantaged populations in a low resource setting. The AIGT is able to provide ethically sound, evidence based and cost-effective preventive and curative care.
