Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

Healthcare professionals in North America are currently faced with the challenge of both treating and preventing the ever-increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as Obesity, Diabetes, and Cardiovascular disease.


The same holds true for community healthcare practitioners in French Polynesia, with additional budgetary, resource, and delivery challenges. They are experiencing similar epidemiological transitions where communicable diseases are decreasing while non-communicable diseases are increasing. Confronting the challenges of providing quality patient care in the face of limited budgets and resources that impact healthcare delivery and access is becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners.


Now, more than ever, it is important for healthcare professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for medical professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional settings.


Planned In-Country Healthcare Topics Include: 

  • Healthcare Delivery in Isolated Communities with Limited Resources: Impact on Medical & Dental Care
  • Medicine at Sea: Common Tropical Diseases, Marine Life Hazards & Travelers’ Illness
  • Emerging Healthcare Issues: Changing Demographics & Chronic Disease Patterns
  • Updates in Heart Failure, Type 2 Diabetes, Psychopharmacology
  • Oral Health: Addressing Dental Diseases
  • Impact of Cultural Competency on Quality Patient Care
  • Mental Health and Well Being

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.

  • Conduct educational healthcare programs to learn about best practice models reflecting current approaches in medicine and healthcare across different cultures for providing quality patient outcomes
  • Provide professional educational exchanges with international colleagues, healthcare educational organizations and clinics to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease
  • Allow medical/healthcare professionals to compare and contrast current best practices in medical/healthcare delivery to provide quality patient outcomes in their own professional setting

Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.


By design, this program permits medical experts to collaborate with colleagues and international counterparts to realize cross cultural view points and updates within the treatment and prevention of disease and offers opportunities to compare and contrast current best practices to supply quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.
