CHDS Faculty, Djøra Soeteman, taught in the Harvard Medical School, Training to Clinicians (T2C) program workshop in Ulaanbaater, Mongolia at the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences (MNUMS), which was held from January 13-16. Through active learning techniques Harvard Faculty, including Kenneth Christopher, Jamie Robertson, and Ganmaa Davaasambuu, taught Clinical Research skills development to 100 Mongolian Healthcare professionals as part of a customized, 6-month curriculum for Harvard Medical School Postgraduate Medical Education . An introduction in decision science and cost-effectiveness analysis was part of the curriculum and Soeteman led an active learning exercise on Structuring a Decision Problem that engaged the students in thinking about and designing a decision tree model. Soeteman is profoundly grateful to Prof. Tsolmon Jadamba, President of MNUMS, and her faculty, who created the opportunity for the Harvard team to teach the workshop and for the warm welcome and hospitality the team received. It was well worth braving the Mongolian – 11 degree Fahrenheit, January temperatures.
