AMSI are committed to creating a generation of future health professionals who are aware of the healthcare needs of a wide variety of patients. Some of these patients may be living in times of great instability and turmoil. Through a national campaign this week, we wish to inform medical students in Ireland about the scope of the issues involved regarding healthcare access in zones of conflict.
As part of our #SyrianHealthcareAccess campaign, a number of events are happening across universities in Ireland, organised by AMSI's #SCORP and our wonderful officer for Human Rights and Peace: Ciara Clarke
AMSI NUIG: Wednesday, 15/02/2017, 19:00. A workshop on emergency aid in zones of conflict, with NEMS and friends of MSF Soc.
