The mission of the Children’s Medical Care Foundation (CMCF) is to ensure that the most advanced pediatric medical knowledge transcends borders and reaches a wide range of infants and children suffering from sickness and disease. CMCF’s goal is for all infants and children to have equal access to the best medical care available.
The Children’s Medical Care Foundation’s philosophy is to provide ”Packages of Medical Knowledge” in the form of Fellowships to Pediatric Specialists and nurses from participating medical centers and universities to train in the latest techniques and procedures at top medical centers in the United States, Poland and Western Europe. CMCF is committed to building “International Medical Bridges” between countries through the open exchange of medical knowledge, building lasting relationships and alliances to transcend borders and reach a wide range of infants and children suffering from life threatening illnesses and diseases.
- Improve the health of infants and children in their native country through supporting innovative Fellowships that will expand access to the best medical care available.
- Coordinate participation of physicians at international pediatric conferences, symposia and speakers forums.
- Support sending subscriptions of American medical journals and Neonatology and Pediatric Surgery textbooks.
CMCF will consider expanding into new countries when individual country program funding has been developed. Each Fellowship is funded through generous donors for a specific country program. Developing new country Pediatric Programs take years to develop and nurture. It requires extensive exploratory work in identifying key doctors in medical university centers that would avail themselves to advanced pediatric training beyond their own country and the commitment to return to their own countries to implement their new found knowledge. Funding has to be identified first from generous donors who are committed to helping their own countrymen. All funds received are designated to a specific country pediatric program. Interested donors are encouraged to contact the CMCF President.
Ieva Ieraste is the Country Managing Director – Baltics Pediatric Program to help facilitate the implementation of the pediatric fellowship programs. Interested doctors should review the website for the application process.
Beyond the Eastern European Borders
CMCF is committed to expanding its fellowship program to include countries that have similar training needs as found in Eastern Europe. Each new country pediatric training program requires separate funding source in order to be initiated. Donors interested in supporting the development of new pediatric fellowship programs, please contact CMCF President, Bjoern Martinoff.
