A virtual program that connects participants with clinical operations at FIMRC sites around the world.
The virtual clinical observation program enables participants to connect directly with FIMRC project site clinic operations in real-time. Participants have the opportunity to understand how in-person clinical operations function during a pandemic, as well as the impact of tele-health services in low-resource settings. The observations may take place at multiple sites, and focus on the following areas:
- Primary care consultations
- Psychology sessions
- Pharmacy operations
- Non-communicable disease treatment & management
Please note, clinical observations are available based on site accessibility to internet, maintaining patient confidentiality, and site schedules.
All funds received by the foundation help support our operations on-site that provide critical medical care and outreach to our communities. As such, all payments and donations are non-refundable. Should you need to cancel your experience, you can reserve 100% of the funds for a future opportunity.
The following is a program schedule commencing in August 2023 based on different number of sessions. Please note that for those purchasing 4 or more sessions, observations will be carried out over a one-month period. There will be a 15 minute tardy policy for each session but we encourage participants to always be on time. Participants will be unable to join a session after the alloted grace period. At this time, we are unable to reschedule missed sessions or accommodate different time-slots.
Observe one-hour clinical consults virtually at one of FIMRC's sites through a fixed schedule with the option to sign up individually for 1, 4, or 8 sessions or as a group for 12 sessions
