Urgent recruitment: Lifebox Fellowship, Tanzania



For August 2018 start.

We are looking to recruit an exceptional ST5+ anaesthesia trainee to undertake a Fellowship at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Moshi, Northern Tanzania.

 

The Fellowship will involve developing and delivering a sustainable and high-impact QI project in collaboration with local colleagues, in addition to taking part in delivery of anaesthesia care. Upon completion of the Fellowship, you can expect to have completed the ‘Anaesthesia in developing countries’ and ‘Improvement Science, Safe and Reliable Systems’ units within the RCOA 2010 Curriculum.

This is an exciting opportunity for a UK trainee keen to make a significant contribution to quality improvement and anaesthesia care in a low-resource setting. The Fellowship is in the process of being approved by the RCOA Training Committee and may be counted towards training as an OOPT or OOPE.

Start date will be August 2018 and the duration will be 6 or 12 months. A £1,000 monthly stipend will be paid during the Fellowship, some further limited support may be available for travel and other expenses.
