Training Doctors

ReSurge provides advanced training to its international medical partners and their staff.

Ongoing continuing education provides our overseas health care colleagues multiple opportunities to hone their skills. Direct, hands-on training under the skilled guidance of a more experienced surgeon takes place on surgical team trips, through visiting educator workshops and through smaller-scale initiatives like the Medical Scholar program.

Additionally, under the direction of the consulting medical officer, ReSurge offers a number of innovative web-based programs that provide an array of learning options for our medical partners: Grand Rounds, interactive databases of cleft and burn case histories and online libraries offering the latest relevant medical literature.

The Visiting Educator program is an essential component of ReSurge's commitment to creating sustainability in the delivery of reconstructive surgical care to the world's poor. Hundreds of local medical personnel each year receive advanced skills training. > more
