Last week 26 doctors, nurses and hospital administrators from 20 countries arrived at Rambam Health Care Campus for a unique seminar. The two-week course, held in conjunction with Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a simple – and essential – goal: to share Rambam’s rich experience and knowhow in treating trauma victims with medical personnel worldwide.

The course consists of lectures, workshops, simulations and tours, at Rambam and throughout Israel, designed to prepare attendees to build systems for treating victims of disaster – both natural and man-made – in their own countries.

This is the ninth annual course of its kind. Global interest continues to rise, along with the number of attendees. Countries that took part this year include Belarus, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nepal, Peru, the Philippines, Russia, Thailand, Uruguay, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
