Senior residents from our anesthesia department have traveled abroad on clinical and education missions in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. One example is the SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship (details below). For details on other opportunities, please contact us.

The SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship

Malawi Senior residents have the opportunity to apply for a SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship to spend three to four weeks teaching anesthesia in a developing country. The SEA/HVO Fellowship is co-sponsored by the Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) and Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO). Traveling Fellows may choose to rotate at any preapproved HVO site if the dates they choose to teach are dates that are available at the site. Traveling Fellows must be HVO members and travel arrangements will be administered by HVO. This is considered a clinical rotation outside the primary program and pre-approval must be obtained from the ABA Credentials Committee. Because this is an outside rotation it should normally be completed prior to the last three months of residency. Two days on either end of the rotation may be taken as travel days; otherwise residents are expected to be teaching on site all days that have been agreed upon by their program and HVO site.
