Education is crucial for improving healthcare and status. Thus, we strive to provide education for people in need without costs. Furthermore, we sponsor courses and degrees for those in need. All our lectures are collected in an education channel and provided for free for our members and targeted audience. You can find these lectures on our YouTube channel.
Our education activities as follow:
(I) Continues Medical Education (CME) – courses and individual lectures
This consists of weekly online lectures that cover any area of medicine. As well as, different courses that includes hands-on workshops. The directed audience varies and can be physicians, dentists, nurses, technicians, paramedics, or even students. Usually given by a field expert who chooses the topic based on his/her dissertation. The audience has the opportunity to interact with the lecturer and ask questions. At the end of the session, the audience will be granted a CME hour(s) certificates.
(II) Medical students’ education
This education is directed toward medical students who study in underserved areas. The aim is to provide these students with free access to online educational materials and help them to understand common topics. This can be conducted as a student-to-student education or a faculty-to-student education.
(III) Goal-directed education (GDE)
The “Goal-Directed Education” concept is based on areas of deficiency, weakness or demand in the health system discovered through the data collected by the HealthySyriaTB program. Based on the findings, a series of lectures is built (directed to the health care providers), as well as guidelines (directed to the health care providers), and educational brochures (directed to the patients). Examples include:
Improving perinatal care and attendance
Neonatal care, monitoring and management
(IV) Patients and population education
This type of education is directed toward patients and population issues. For example, we conducted an educational campaign in North-West Syria to encourage and improve breastfeeding.
The Academy of Health Sciences is an academic, not-for-profit institution of medical education established in 2011 in Syria with a charter granted by the Council of Higher Education. Its aim is to work in close partnership with national, regional, and international academic institutions to provide the best education for students in need.
