CRIMEDIM is committed to offering quality, scientific, evidence-based education through academic learning programs using innovative teaching methodologies such as distance learning, table-top exercises, virtual reality simulations and disaster drills.
These education and training platforms will help develop well-trained disaster experts and teams able to mitigate the impact of natural and man-made disasters with effective preparedness and response, resulting in minimal human losses.
In particular, specific knowledge of organization, logistics and medical aspects are required to reduce disaster-related mortality and morbidity during such health crisis.
The Center promotes the extensive use of high technology educational solutions to provide effective teaching and learning programs. The didactic approach is based on recent theories of andragogy, which places social interaction at the centre of understanding: the individual is an active constructor of knowledge, but meaning is achieved only through interaction and active participation.
Master’s of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degree programs as well as international training courses for nursing and medical students, residents and other different healthcare professional are delivered in parallel during the academic year.
