Funded Combined Critical Care Anesthesia opportunity in Botswana. If interested please read and reach out to attached contact.
Beth Israel in Boston has a longstanding partnership with a district hospital in Botswana whereby we fund a full-time internal medicine and full-time Obgyn attending and residents do rotations. I respect the program a lot – they were very careful initially to not go in to “steal data” and publish, and to listen to the local / national agenda. They have now made some incredible strides in medical education and patient care, and are linked into the national MOH planning process. They are just now starting to write up experience and support local research projects.
The IM and OB person on the ground have expressed a desperate need for an ICU physician, as the ICU is well-resourced but not well-staffed. We need someone who will do well personally and clinically, and who can commit a minimum of a year but preferably be open to longer.
I also think its a great opportunity for a global health anesthesiologist who wants to be on the ground. I am committed to supporting from afar as someone who has experience in a similar setting, and I have a curriculum from Rwanda that can be used as desired for the ICU. This position is funded by Beth Israel.
