Call for surgeons: become visiting faculty in Africa, via G4 Alliance

Our G4 Alliance member the College of Surgeons of East, Central & Southern Africa (COSECSA) is looking for support to train surgeons in their region. Specifically, COSECSA is seeking surgeons to come over to any of the 80 accredited hospitals in 17 countries in their region, for at least two weeks duration, to assist in training their trainees. Such surgeons (including those nearing retirement or recently retired) would come as Visiting Faculty to COSECSA training sites at these hospitals, which are accredited by COSECSA and by the licensing councils of each country.
Interested surgeons or organizations may contract G4 Alliance Permanent Council Vice President Prof. Pankaj Jani at for more information.
