PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT The Government of Liberia aims to build a high quality and sustainable healthcare system. Liberia currently faces a critical deficit of physicians and other healthcare workers, and one key root cause of this shortage is the lack of an adequate number of faculty to train future physicians. A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine (AMD) trains an average of 40-60 students per year as Liberia’s only medical school but has very few basic science faculty to provide preclinical, basic science teaching to medical students. In addition, AMD needs to develop Liberian educators in the long-term in order to produce a sustainable preclinical education program, reduce the medical school’s reliance on donor funding, and improve the quality of graduates entering medical specialty programs. The Liberian Ministry of Health has established the Health Workforce Program (HWP), a multi-year project that aims to bolster and expand the health education infrastructure and health workforce in order to create a high quality, resilient healthcare system in Liberia. Yale School of Medicine has been identified to help develop a sustainable model to strengthen medical education at AMD and develop a sustainable pipeline for Liberian basic science, preclinical faculty. The program will be inaugurated in July 2017. We are now seeking applications for 2017-2018 academic year (July 2017-June 2018).
