Dylan’s Story – World Anesthesia Day in Rwanda

Muraho. Fantastic turnout for a social lunch for World Anesthesia Day yesterday. I think that this day goes unnoticed for most of us in Canada. At CHEO we order in baked good to the coffee room at the slighted provocation but I don’t think that this day has ever prompted a cake. We’re lucky to be able to take anesthesia, and our colleagues, for granted. In Kigali this was both a serious, but a joyful celebration. Anesthesia in Rwanda used to be one of the least popular specialties for post-graduate education, now it’s #1 – with 12 recruits this year, it’s more than any other program at the University of Rwanda.
