Outreach Training Program

Users Group

To date, over 66 organizations from 18 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East have participated in our Immersion Program and have established mentoring programs based on the MIT VMS Model.

Every organization that participates in our Immersion Program becomes a member of the MIT VMS Users Group, which exchanges ideas, shares experiences, and engages in group-learning. This program has been in existence since 2006, and the learning and relationships established among the organizations have been of great value to all participants.
