Driven by the needs of the countries, institutions, and communities we serve, Seed recognizes that for changes to endure and sustain, we need to work at both an individual and systems level to build skills, knowledge, and capacity. Seed’s core strategy and primary entry point centers on placing skilled and qualified Educators at partner institutions for a minimum of one academic year.
Our multi layered approach focuses on (1) working with the institutions and faculty who are educating a rising generation of healthcare professionals, to strengthen their ability to deliver high-quality teaching and training, (2) expanding educational opportunities in the clinical environment to help better prepare health professionals to deliver quality care in communities, clinics, and hospitals through strong mentorship and training (3) dynamically engaging with policy makers and thought leaders to advocate for professional health workers.
Seed’s educators serve as the building blocks, enhancing the education, practice, and policy environment to achieve our goals.

Educators participate in a range of teaching and clinical activities. For example, a Nurse Educator may teach a Maternal and Child Health course to 3rd year students and then collaborate with their local faculty colleague on a quality improvement project focused on monitoring and assessing postoperative patients at their clinical site. Educators have also provided student mentoring, surgical training, course and exam preparation, led training for their faculty on advanced research skills, and organized skills workshops for hospital staff.
