MedMissions Global: An 8-Country Collaboration with Doctors Without Borders | Medicines Sans Frontieres

MedMissions Global: An 8-Country Collaboration with Doctors Without Borders | Medicines

The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Certification Academy™ announces Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known as Doctors Without Borders, as the selection of their MissionPOCUS™ project for the 2020 fiscal year. As the third MissionPOCUS project since the initiative’s inception in 2018, Inteleos’ MissionPOCUS will award MSF a grant that will establish a pilot program between the two organizations to evaluate the possibility of integrating POCUS certification into MSF’s POCUS education and training processes. The pilot is focused on developing a unique POCUS certification that will translate across resource-limited areas, with the goal of expanding the proficient use of point-of-care ultrasound to clinicians around the globe. For the POCUS Certification Academy, the project is slated to lay the foundation for greater conversation and action toward the use of POCUS in rural areas, specifically in developing nations.
