Arrival in Northern Thailand
We arrived in Northern Thailand on Saturday afternoon. After a quick meal, everyone set about planning lessons and discussing various educational models and strategies.
The team is comprised of:
- One Trauma Medic Specialist
- Five Emergency Room Physicians
- A Nurse educator
- An OB/GYN Resident
- One medical student
- Our excellent GHAP Trauma intern
- A human rights lawyer (and impromptu blogger and photographer) along for the ride
We are expecting between 20 an 35 Karen medics to attend, but won't know the exact numbers until training begins tomorrow morning. For now, the afternoon has been spent drinking coffee at the hotel, planning lessons, and discussing teaching strategies. Tomorrow we will head out to the training site and meet the medics.
