Training of Disaster Medicine Trainers



General Description

The innovative worldwide program Training disaster medicine Trainers (TdmT) aims to create the first international train-the-trainer class of medical students willing to become disaster medicine trainers across the world. This action is in response to increasing numbers of disasters and lack on this topic in regular medical curriculum. Due to the TdmT we will build a generation of future physicians prepared to act in emergency and disaster conditions.
