SWME Featured in PCMA Convene Article

SWME is proud to be featured in an online article published by PCMA Convene. Titled, "Making Education More Accessible," the article describes SWME’s use of technology to reduce barriers to medical education in partnership with medical associations, hospitals and universities. 
Read the following excerpt from the article:
“For many organizations and individuals, an online option for education can save money and time. In the world of medical education, it also can save lives. 
The nonprofit Society for Worldwide Medical Exchange (SWME) was founded in 2009 to advance global health by making quality medical education more accessible to doctors and other medical professionals around the world, including those in remote and disadvantaged areas, according to Shavala Magri, SWME's executive director.
The organization, which is based near Miami, uses technology to help lower the barriers created by time, distance, and cost by partnering with medical associations, hospitals, and universities to create interactive online courses featuring content presented at live events. The courses are available for an average of $100 to $150, with discounts for medical residents and others — a fraction of the cost of attending a program in person, Magri said. A recent example was the Oct. 12 conference Bridging Neurology and Psychiatry: Movement Disorders, which was held in Boston and was a collaboration between SWME, Butler Hospital, Alpert Medical School at Brown University, and the Movement Disorder Society.”
