Overseas Teaching Program - Rwanda
The only remaining teaching program in keeping with the original mission of the Overseas Teaching Program is the collaboration between the ASA and the Canadian Society of Anesthesiologists in Rwanda.  The ASA supports this collaboration by providing member volunteers and financially supporting travel to this teaching site for approximately six ASA members a year. We expect the ASA support of the Rwanda program to end in 2015 as the GHO continues to expand its scope of outreach.

For travel reimbursement requests and information, please contact Lupe Simpson.

For more information about the Rwandan effort, please download the Guide for Volunteers.

Since its founding in 1905, the Society's achievements have made it an important voice in American Medicine and the foremost advocate for all patients who require anesthesia or relief from pain.
