Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship Program

The American Society of Anesthesiologists Global Humanitarian Outreach (GHO) committee offers a scholarship program for U.S. Anesthesiology residents to spend a month in a resource poor setting. The site for the rotation will be a CURE Hospital in Ethiopia, Uganda, Malawi or Kenya or a GHO affiliated site in Rwanda or Guyana. Residents will have the opportunity to experience the challenges of delivering safe anesthesia in a low-resource, underserved area in a developing country as well as participate in the training and education of local anesthesia providers. With appropriate planning, the resident will be eligible to receive ABA credit. Covered expenses include travel, lodging, meals, visa, vaccinations and medical insurance.

Applications will be accepted in the Fall for 2019-2020.
