IDEAS partners with an organization that runs a 5-year medical training program in the hills of eastern Myanmar with a training facility located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We are seeking a Math & Science GRE Instructor who can help bridge the gap between the students' secondary education and their medical training.

Our partner organization is training young people from the jungle areas of Eastern Myanmar, primarily from the “Karen” people group. Decades of civil war have left the infrastructure in shambles. This program trains young adults to the level of Physician's Assistant over the course of the 5-year program. Graduates of the program go out to the remote areas to help build up their communities.
