Who should participate?

MedLog is aimed at experienced logisticians and medical specialists handing the medical supply within humanitarian organizations. The self-paced distance learning is designed specifically for those recently working (or plan to work) in operational supply chain positions within humanitarian organizations. There are no academic pre-requisites. Less experienced logisticians are recommended to take the Certification in Humanitarian Logistics program first.

How will you learn?

MedLog uses the innovative ‘competence model’ approach, which emphasizes application of skills, as opposed to the examination of knowledge. At the start of the course, the candidate (or student) is inserted into a reality-based scenario in which they have to advise on and manage a medical supply chain. The tasks that they are requested to do are designed to facilitate the development of and demonstration that they have the required skills, as defined in the competence model.

Throughout the program, which is administered by the Logistics Learning Alliance, candidates are supported by learning coaches experienced in logistics. These coaches also assess candidates’ assignments and determine when they are ready to proceed to the next unit. Candidates should expect to take 6 months to complete the program, studying pproximately 5 hours per week. During that time, a portfolio documenting the candidates achievements and skills is collated for submission at the end of the program to the awarding body (CILT-UK) for final assessment.

"This course has improved my learning capacity from good to excellent performance in my job. I am currently running training on pharmaceutical management in the country for Save The Children International in South Sudan." - Kenyi Elisa Chaplain, completed MedLog student
