• It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do. I have seen it first hand in Karbala during the Arbaeen camps and my son was fortunate to participate in two of the missions. I have made a donation today.

  • I cannot express the profound impact IMI has had on my life: from the incredible opportunity to serve on the Arbaeen Medical Mission to the insightful career guidance and special programs for Young Leaders that I’ve benefitted from!

  • If InshAllah, I secure a residency in the upcoming match, I will owe the organizers and the speakers at the seminar more than they will take credit for.

  • IMI has been my outlet for philanthropic work since before I entered into high school. It is through IMI that I see my efforts, here in New Jersey, manifest into something much greater around the world. IMI has helped me realize that ambition alone is not enough to change the world; in order to achieve the changes we wish to see in this world we require ambition, vision, and most importantly execution. That is why I have joined IMI, so that my ambition and vision can meet their execution.

ACLS/BLS Training Iraq


A particular highlight of IMI’s Third Delegation to Iraq was the first Basic Life Support/Advanced Cardiac Life Support (BLS/ACLS) training course in Iraq's national history. During this course, IMI delegates trained and certified 45 professionals from Najaf and the surrounding area at Al Sadr Hospital. A Karbala session was also held to train 50 - 60 candidates in BLS/ACLS. The training team was comprised of Dr. Imran Imam, Dr. Fatima Ali, Dr. Usama Al Kanani, Dr. Hasan Gokal, and Dr. Barkat Jaferi.

Additional courses have been arranged subsequently for a range of audiences. For example, IMI was instrumental in conducting a BLS course for police officers at Najaf Police Academy in cooperation with Al-Anwer Al-Najafia Foundation for Culture and Progress on Monday 8th August, 2011. Most recently, multiple BLS/ACLS training courses were held in January 2013 with a total of 104 senior level medical students from Kufa University and Karbala University Schools of Medicine. As always course attendees received American Heart Association Certification. Dr. Imran Imam, Dr. Azmat Husain and Dr. Rafid Umran conducted the training. Students received extensive training in running megacodes, airway management, and AED and Defibrillator training.
