Medical Ambassadors

What is a Medical Ambassador?

A PCP Medical Ambassador volunteer is a compassionate, dedicated medical professional investing his or her skills in service to Congo. We have developed an innovative volunteer structure to allow medical and healthcare professionals to work alongside their counterparts in Congo. Our “training of the trainers” approach equips local personnel throughout the healthcare system of hospitals and clinics. The Medical Ambassadors are a critical link to transformed and saved lives.

Training the Trainers in Congo

 

 

 

 

 

Through the “Training the Trainers” method, our goal is to multiply medical training for long-term impact. Medical teams traveling to Congo train a group of local medical professionals in their area of expertise. The team then provides skill training, follow-up processes, procurement of supplies, and is often involved in funding the professional development costs for participating trainees. Congolese professionals return to their facility, where they train 8-10 people on the specific skill. In addition, they are equipped with supplies needed to carry out the program at their respective facility.
