Under the auspices of the Dean of the School of Medicine , a training workshop was held in the SOM as part of the project to establish a diploma program in family medicine, which falls under the primary health care program in Jordan. The workshop was held for three days (19,20,21 of February ,2023).
It is worth noting that the project is one of the projects supported by the European Union within the Erasmus Plus program for capacity building in higher education.
The workshop was held in coordination between the International Affairs Unit at the University of Jordan and the College of Medicine represented by Dr. Lana Halaseh, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine, and she is the liaison officer for the project in the SOM. A number of faculty members, doctors and researchers from medical faculties in Jordanian universities participated in the workshop .
The workshop included a number of lectures and panel discussions presented by trainers from Queen Mary University in Britain (Dr Safiya Virji ) and from Jordan ( Dr Amna Hawash) , and was keen to provide training needs, optimal communication skills, skills for obtaining feedback from health care recipients, and how to build appropriate treatment plans, in addition to discussing clinical cases, and facing challenges during the provision of care.
It is worth noting that the project is being implemented in Jordan with joint efforts from the University of Jordan, the Hashemite University, the Jordan University of Science and Technology, and three European universities: Keio Leuven University in Belgium, Radboud University in the Netherlands, and Queen Mary University in London in the United Kingdom. The project aims to develop the educational skills of health care providers, and expand their capabilities in an effective manner capable of bringing about change in the health sector.
