Gaslini International Training Programs

Gaslini International Training Programs

Gaslini International is the operating platform of initiatives fostered under the auspices of the Gerolamo Gaslini Foundation and organized by the Giannina Gaslini Children's Hospital and Research Center and International School of Pediatric Sciences of Genoa, Italy, that seeks to contribute to upgrading the quality of pediatric health care practice in countries of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.

Within this framework, the Gaslini International Training Program represents a package of targeted training actions in a range of general pediatric disciplines in which the Giannina Gaslini Children's Hospital has long been recognized as a world leader.

In its pilot phase, Gaslini International is pleased to announce the launch of a series of high-level 10-day residential postgraduate training courses addressed to pediatricians and health care practitioners in Mediterranean, Near Middle East and Central and Eastern European countries. The overriding aim of these actions is to provide participants from these countries with the skills and approaches needed to guarantee quality child health care.

Moreover, Gaslini International is pleased to announce that, in this pilot phase, grants are being offered to cover in full all tuition and local rooming & boarding expenses of selected participants (highly motivated and justified requests for the refund of travel costs will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.)

Rather than leaving a short intervention project to its own fate, Gaslini International will endeavor to build on the relationships that are ultimately established with participants, consolidating at the same time already existing collaborative bonds, in order to achieve its overarching goal to effectively and efficiently network pediatric health care centers throughout the Mediterranean basin and nations set to become full Members of the European Union.

Through the stipulation of full-fledged formal agreements and the establishment of strategic partnerships foreseeing short- and long-term staff exchanges, joint research and clinical projects, including telemedicine applications, and when necessary the transfer of especially difficult cases for which appropriate care is not available in the country of origin, Gaslini International will ultimately constitute a viable working platform to ensure adequate continuity, quality control and follow-up of actions aimed at providing standardized pediatric health care throughout the regions addressed by the program.
