The ASA Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach (GHO) is pleased to announce the application cycle for the 2017-18 scholarship program for U.S. anesthesiology residents to spend a month in a resource-poor setting. The site for the rotation will be a CURE Hospital in Ethiopia, Uganda, Malawi or Kenya or a GHO-affiliated site in Rwanda or Guyana. Residents will have the opportunity to experience the challenges of delivering safe anesthesia in a low-resource, underserved area in a developing country as well as participate in the training and education of local anesthesia providers. With appropriate planning, the resident will be eligible to receive ABA credit. Covered expenses include travel, lodging, meals, visa, vaccinations and medical insurance.
