SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship Rotation
“Senior anesthesia residents interested in spending 4 weeks teaching at an HVO anesthesia site in a developing country are invited to apply. The successful applicant will be exposed to a wide range of surgical pathologies and anesthetic techniques not commonly seen in the United States. He/she will learn to communicate more effectively with people from different cultures and will be exposed to the realities and constraints of delivering health care in a resource scarce environment. The resident will be challenged to be flexible and creative in problem solving. Fellows will serve as teachers of anesthesia and as role models for the anesthesia students at the site. They will not be expected to take direct responsibility for patient care in the operating room. If the resident choses a site that requires a preceptor, it will be the resident’s responsibility to find an anesthesia Fellow or Attending to fulfill the role. Successful applicants can only teach at currently available HVO anesthesia sites, which may change between the application date and the date of travel.”
Application due date: Annually in January
