Medicine, the international language Featured

Medical leaders from around the globe convened at RAMBAM Health Care Campus for its 13th Annual International Trauma Course

Twenty-six leading healthcare professionals representing 20 countries around the world recently came to Haifa to participate in RAMBAM Health Care Campus' prestigious Trauma Medicine Course. The purpose of the course is to share RAMBAM’s expertise in treating military and civilian trauma victims, and give participants the tools to develop systems capable of dealing with multiple-casualty events in their home countries.

Now in its 13th year, the course is offered in cooperation with MASHAV, Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation.

Participants in this year’s trauma course included high-level medical personnel from the Far East, Latin America, the US, and Europe. Among them were the Director of the Office for Emergency Medical Systems in Thailand, a senior medical officer from the UN serving in the Golan Heights, the president of the Vietnamese Nurses and Operating Room Nurses Associations, the Acting Director of the National Emergency Medical Services Center in Nepal, a head nurse from a military hospital in the Philippines, and the Director of the Resuscitation Team at the only pediatric hospital in Kenya, among others.

One of the many activities offered by RAMBAM’s Center for Trauma and Emergency Medicine Studies, the two-week international trauma course includes lectures, workshops, training activities, simulations, and tours of RAMBAM and other sites around the country.

According to Gila Hymes, Director of the Teaching Center for Trauma, Emergency, and Mass Casualty Situations, “We have taken our vast experience treating victims of war, terror and accidents, and are sharing it to benefit medical systems around the world. Medicine is an international language that we are using here at RAMBAM to help save lives around the world.”
