IUGA is pleased to inform you of our academic and clinical participation through the newly created Foundation for International Urogynecological Assistance in the Urogynecology Fellowship Program of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, the first formal urogynecology/female pelvic medicine post-residency training program in West (and possibly the entirety of) Africa.
The Ghana Project is ready to schedule on-the-ground member participation in 2013-14. Based in Accra & Kumasi, this 2 year female pelvic medicine fellowship program employs a modified version of the Urogynaecology curriculum of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Professor Anyatei Lassey and faculty launched the program in 2011 with charter fellow Gabriel Ganyaglo, MD.
In 2013-14, our first clinical participant years, we offer positions of 2 weeks each month beginning in February. We encourage all interested members to complete the attached survey and registration forms.
Participants will cover the airfare expense to Accra. IUGA will cover ground transportation, housing, and the registration fee with the Medical and Dental Council of Ghana.
Your contribution to this pioneering development in international pelvic floor academics is most welcome.
Submission of the registration form will hold your preferred time slot as the committee considers your application.
Placements are currently being arranged for May, 2014, and later.
Once you are approved, you will receive the credentialing and visa documentation you will need to finalize your participation.
We look forward to an exciting collaboration with our visionary colleagues at The Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons!
