Partners in International Medical Education
PRIME is an international network of professional healthcare educators, committed to integrating rigorous science and compassionate care for the whole person.
It encourages and supports healthcare professionals to practice and teach sound scientific knowledge and clinical skills, to consider the effects of illness on the whole person – body, mind and spirit – and to provide care with integrity and generous compassion.
We do this through delivering teaching programs and training and resourcing healthcare educators around the world with teaching skills and materials that present evidence for the global health benefits of this approach, and illustrate the practice of patient-centred healthcare.
Over a billion people worldwide lack access to even the most basic healthcare, often because there are no healthcare workers.
Train a healthcare worker and you can help save lives.
Train a healthcare educator and you can help save thousands of lives.
