INTRODUCTION TO: “HYBRID” “INTERNATIONAL”
QiMET International Limited is the first international organisation to recognise that doctors need to be trained as clinicians and leaders at the same time. This is why we call our doctors “Hybrid” doctors. We also recognise that doctors work internationally but are not always trained to work internationally. We pride ourselves in creating “International” curricula to respond to the health care needs of a global population as a measure to increase patient safety and reduce medical error. Our programme is the: Hybrid International Emergency Medicine (HIEM) Programme.
HIEM is the first collaborative international Emergency Medicine (EM) training developed in the UK.
