Twelve men from Nigeria, Togo, Papua New Guinea, and Haiti have graduated from the MediSend Biomedical Repair Training Program, which has now graduated 73 BMETs in developing countries. The graduation ceremony was held at the Elisabeth Dahan Humanitarian Center, MediSend International’s global headquarters in Dallas, Tex.

The 12 men completed the six-month biomedical repair training program that will enable them to return to their home countries and positively impact health care in their communities. Graduates of the program are taught to install, repair and maintain life-saving biomedical equipment in their hospitals.

A new class of trainees from Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, and Papua New Guinea will arrive at MediSend in July.
