Philadelphia International Medicine and The Dominican Society of Hematology and Oncology come together to share medical knowledge, technology and improve health care in both communities.
PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) and The Dominican Society of Hematology and Oncology have created a partnership that will enable both organizations to share and exchange medical knowledge and technology while also working to improve accessibility to highly skilled care in both Philadelphia and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
Their recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will allow the two organizations to create a collaborative relationship in the areas of clinical and administrative training, physician exchanges, enhancing the continuum of care and other joint opportunities.
“The Dominican Society of Hematology and Oncology – PIM Health Gateway Initiative will create a channel to share medical knowledge and technology while also working to improve accessibility to highly skilled care,” said Leonard Karp, PIM president and CEO. “By building relationships and jointly exploring opportunities, both parties, as well as their constituents, seek to better the overall health of their communities. Through this gateway, PIM will offer a unique opportunity for The Dominican Society of Hematology and Oncology's physicians to have access to continuous medical education seminars, medical training, innovative uses of medical technology and coordinated comprehensive patient care. This new partnership will facilitate learning, relationship building between the medical societies, their affiliated hospitals and members, and provide a better understanding of each party’s culture, communities, and norms.”
