1st Pre-conference faculty development day for DIMM course directors

In 12 countries worldwide we find courses in mountain medicine that apply the curriculum approved by three mountaineering organizations – ISMM, ICAR and UIAA. These courses are certified and award the International Diploma/Certificate in Mountain Medicine (DIMM). During the ISMM World Congress 2014 in Bolzano, a faculty development programme will be offered as a pre-conference day at EURAC on 25 May 2014 for the directors of these courses. Representatives from 10 countries will attend. The staff for the day consists of members of the DIMM core faculty and experts in medical education. The aim of the preconference is to foster a lively exchange between the course directors, present new insights into the field of adult learning and aid the development of this international qualification. Attendance is by invitation only.
