Message from the Directors


In our roles as regional directors overseeing simulation developments in South Asia and East Africa, we are delighted to connect with you through this newsletter. Together, we champion a core CIME idea that binds us across borders: the 'ONE CIME' concept.


At CIME, the 'ONE CIME' principle embodies unity, collaboration, and shared excellence across diverse international locations. This principle unifies our efforts, allowing us to leverage collective expertise and resources to drive transformative healthcare education through simulation.


By embracing 'ONE CIME', we fortify our resolve to build bridges between East Africa and South Asia, fostering mutual learning, knowledge exchange, and collaborative initiatives. Through this unified approach, we unlock new potentials for advancing simulation-based education, creating a ripple effect that enhances healthcare practices globally.


As regional directors, we invite you to join us in championing the 'ONE CIME' concept. Together, let's harness the power of collaboration and unity to propel simulation education to new heights, transcending boundaries and creating a brighter future for healthcare professionals worldwide.


With warm regards,

Faisal Ismail and Michael Moneypenny
