ABOUT CMP

Launched in May 2016, the Conflict Medicine Program (CMP) at the Global Health Institute is the first of its kind to be established within a civilian academic institution. The CMP combines academic expertise with AUB’s strategic location in the MENA that offers direct access to conflict zones and populations impacted by conflict. Through an established conceptual framework, CMP aims to address the biological, psychological and social consequences of wounding and trauma from war. This framework builds on local, regional, and international partnerships to engage professionals from academic and nonacademic organizations from across specialties and disciplines to treat, recover, and rehabilitate war injuries amongst civilians by applying a comprehensive approach.

 

CMP aspires to become the global leader for research and training on conflict and health by integrating rigorous research, theory, teaching, and practice. Through this platform, CMP aims to translate knowledge from war zones into expertise by educating and training health professionals on innovative research and clinical skills to treat large numbers of war injuries and war-related afflictions.
