ERM faculty member Dr. Holly Downs and ERM students Audrea Carter and Lindsey Varner recently traveled to the Dominican Republic to collect data evaluating the implementation and impact of an educational program for prosthetic and orthotic technicians based in Santo Domingo. The educational program was implemented by Physicians for Peace, an organization aimed at delivering healthcare education and support in underserved countries around the world. This evaluation marks the first collaboration of Physicians for Peace and ERM, being facilitated by ERM alumnus Korinne Chiu, who is the Director of Evaluation for Physicians for Peace, and ERM’s Office of Assessment, Evaluation, and Research Services (OAERS). Through this collaboration, ERM students have been able to gain exceptional hands-on experience in program evaluation while providing valuable service to the Physician’s for Peace organization. More information about practical learning experiences in evaluation, assessment, and data analysis provided to ERM students can be found on the Practical Experience page of the ERM website. A detailed description of ERM’s degree programs can be found on the Academic Programs page of the ERM website.
