Inspire Kenya 3!On December 4, 2019
This Tue 3rd of December, 2019 we have our third Inspire Through Clinical Teaching Course at the Kenyatta National Hospital, Nairobi, Kenya. This has been made possible through a grant. The previous courses were successful and we have been able to recruit local faculty. Dr. Naomi Shamambo, an anaesthesiologist at the University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, Zambia shall be joining us. She is on the Inspire steering committee and leads the courses in Zambia independently.
Dr. Mark Gacii who runs the WFSA Paediatric Anaesthesia Fellowship shall be part of the faculty. He attended the Inspire course in Addis in May this year. He has been instrumental in ensuring that we continue to have the Inspire courses in Nairobi.
We have a diverse local faculty from different universities in the country who act as Inspire course ambassadors. Participants have been doctors in various fields and we believe this will have a great impact on improving quality of training and developing a network of medical educators.
Thanks to the Kenya Society of Anaesthesiologists and to the University of Nairobi, Anaesthesia Department for the great support through the courses. The Anaesthesia Department at the Kenyatta National Hospital has provided the training venue each time.
Dr. Victoria Simiyu
