Internship and career

The executive committee of IPM-International in Switzerland is launching a competition for the positions of Project Management Directors. We are looking for young graduates of Master’s in project management in the fields of Global Health and Humanitarian Medicine. This competition is open to dynamic young people aged 25 to 35 years preceding an MBA in project management, among others, in the aforementioned fields.




IPMA was established on 16 December 2000 as the Institute of Psychotraumatology and Mediation for Africa. In 2004, its founding president, Dr. Issack Biyong, changed it to IPM-International because of the growing need for better services for victims of psychological trauma around the world due to war, ethnic, tribal or religious conflicts, exile, torture, physical and sexual violence, natural disasters, or as a result of pandemics.

Your money helps us keep our services free and available to survivors of traumatic events and their loved ones. You can make these resources a reality with your gift

Promotion of projects by the ISFM – supporting postgraduate training 


Message to the Heads of Swiss Postgraduate Training Institutions

Ladies and Gentlemen,
The Swiss Institute for Medical Education (SIMPH) is once again organising a competition to promote postgraduate education. In view of the positive feedback received and the high quality of the projects submitted, the Swiss Institute for Medical Education has decided to hold the competition again this year.
By providing financial support to selected projects, the Institute aims to support ideas that improve the quality of training and reduce the workload of trainers. The content of the projects and the method used are free. However, projects with a content on competence-based education (CBME), EPAs, the introduction of CBME in postgraduate training institutions, learning culture and faculty development are of particular interest to the ISFM. Projects on the theme of global health are also preferably supported.
Do you or your colleagues involved in postgraduate education have a concrete idea or concept that you would like to implement? Then send your project in electronic form by 15 March 2023 to with the mention “Project promotion of the ISFM”.
You can find more information on our website.
We look forward to receiving your projects and wish you all the best.
Dr. Raphael Stolz
Vice President of the Swiss Institute for Medical Education (ISFM)
