Global Medic Force and partners create historic online continuing medical education platform

In a truly historic initiative, Global Medic Force has partnered with the Long Life Clinics (Vietnam) and Long Life Clinics (China) to create an online Continuing Medical Education (CME) platform to serve all of the healthcare workers in Vietnam and China.

This online CME service will be provided completely for free to all healthcare workers in Vietnam and China and will therefore impact on their combined population base of 1,427,189,726 people.

While this national CME initiative in no way replaces the invaluable effect of the Global Medic Force clinical mentor volunteers actually putting their “boots on the ground”, it will allow clinical mentor volunteers even more scope to transfer their medical human capital directly to their colleagues in the emerging world.

The medical human capital value of Global Medic Force’s volunteer cadre is currently valued at +$5 Billion.

By combining a free national CME platform to all healthcare workers in Vietnam and China with dramatically increased operational volunteer deployments into both geographies, Global Medic Force will create a permanent national accelerated “multiplier effect” of medical excellence in all fields of primary healthcare.

CME subjects covered will be offered in Vietnamese, Cantonese, Mandarin and English in areas of medicine that are most relevant to each specific region. Global Medic Force volunteer clinical mentors will be invited to become permanent contributors to the ongoing CME platform to fully utilize their respective fields of expertise.
