ABOUT THIS COLLECTION

UMass Chan Medical School received a three-year Partnership for Enhanced Engagement in Research (PEER) grant from the National Academies of Sciences and USAID in 2018 to support the school's work to establish family medicine residency training and infectious disease research and training for Liberian medical residents and junior faculty. This work continues UMass Chan's partnership with the A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine of Liberia. This site is a collection of educational materials produced for the Liberia PEER project until it officially ended in August 2023. More information about the PEER workshops is available from the University of Liberia Health Science Library website.
