|  ABOUT US                 

The FEMEBA foundation was created in 1994. Since then, it has carried out various activities related to continuing education, from a health and social perspective. For this work we have the invaluable collaboration of prestigious friends at the National and International Level.

The Social Question Forum, the Bioethics Commission, the Editorial FEMEBA, the Pharmacology area, and the Palliative Care area, these last two with more than two decades of experiencie, complement the wide teaching offer of the FEMEBA Institute whose classrooms already pass more than a thousand students per year.

Nevertheless, we took on the great challenge just over two years ago , when the idea of founding a simulation center was taking shape and after a huge financial effort and as a result of the joint work of an exceptional team, this idea came true.

Give value to our old headquarters after more than seven years unocuppied, and develop our simulation center hear, it is a dream come true that happen in difficult times in wich our doctors go through great vicissitudes, for this reason we trust that they will find in INSPIRE a space that they feel is theirs and that allows them to train with the best and most modern existing tools. 

Our Quality and Patient Safety program will find a strong ally and an invaluable tool at INSPIRE Simulation Center FEMEBA, that will undoubtedly collaborate in everything related to the incorporation of knowledge and skills in the field of health, not only for our doctors, but also for many other professions and activities directly or indirectly related to health sector.       

The most important Simulation Center of the country and one of the best in Latin America for infraestructure and resources, has its doors open to all those who make up the different institutions and entities related to medical sciences.

We renew our commitment to the community, the health sector, and doctors in particular, and we are committed to carrying out new projects that contribute to their well-being.


INSPIRE is an acronym , and collect the characteristics that a learning facilitator should have, wich in spanish are: Inteligente, Nutritivo, Socrático, Progresivo, Innovador, Reflexivo y Estimulante.

In the last two decades, it has developed teaching, research and extension activities, aimed at medical professionals and non-medical personnel dedicated to health.

        Education is considered a fundamental pillar to produce changes that benefit the health of the population. In this sense, with the experience that the FEMEBA Foundation has as a central actor in the field of health sciences in the province of Buenos Aires, as of 2012 it has been dedicated to organizing the FEMEBA INSTITUTE (FI).

        The Medical Federation of the Province of Buenos Aires is a non-profit Civil Entity and voluntary second degree afilliation. It contains 111 Primary Entities with scope in 119 of the 135 municipalities of the province of Buenos Aires, and integrates the Permanent Special Commission for Hospital Careers.
