“to accelerate the diffusion of best
evidence-based medical information and to foster interaction and discussion
among healthcare providers using the
latest information technology”
The Malta Institute for Medical Education
(M.I.M.E.) is a new concept for an international teaching institute created
to promote postgraduate medical education in Malta. In putting together
an international faculty, a team of established local academics have invited
international authorities as well as prominent expatriate Maltese lecturers
in all medical disciplines to collaborate together. The academic
content will include formal didactic courses, but also skills courses,
as well as workshops, seminars, conferences and masterclasses. M.I.M.E. will also be
hosting a virtual academy supporting online training.
M.I.M.E. is perceived by its promoters
as a growing cluster of medical knowledge facilities, multidisciplinary
medical, dental, pharmaceutical, and paramedical, and it addresses the
needs of these other allied professional groups. The services offered
by the Institute will not be limited to local graduates, but will be extended
to countries in the Mediterranean basin, as well as North Africa.
Strategically, Malta is well placed as
a location for this centre. The proposed Institute will be the only one
of its kind in Southern Europe and North Africa. The fact that it
will be located in an English-speaking country which is safe, within the
European Union and therefore politically and economically stable, with
a wealth of history and culture, and enjoying an excellent maritime climate,
renders it all the more attractive and unique.
Potential interested course organisers are invited
to forward a detailed proposal of the scientific content of the proposed
activity to the organising committee of MIME (contact information as below).
