In the spring of 2018, MIE2018 was held with 2 new topics added to Disaster Management, Emergency Medicine and Psychology in Disasters. The School took 9 days, including theory classes and practical activities. We had medical students participating from Iran, Germany, Austria and Bulgaria. It is also of note that national and international organizations such as UN-habitat, MSF, and Red Crescent supported the program and certified it.
On the first day of the program, an opening ceremony was held followed by icebreaking activities and group games to welcome the participants and create a friendly environment. Second day was dedicated to visiting Reza Abbasi Museum and Saad Abad Palace.
After two days of recreational programs, the first official day of the school started by a thrilling lecture given by MSF representative, Dr. Mathew Screve. In the afternoon, a 3-hour class around the topic of Triage in Disasters was headed by one of the main co-organizers of MIE, Kaveh Same.
