IVUmed Traveling Resident Scholar—apply now for 2008

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Dec 11, 2007 11:45:00 AM

IVUmed, formerly International Volunteers in Urology, is a wonderful organization I am honored to support and serve and a member of the board. IVUmed sends medical teams around the world to teach local providers and provide care to patients with a variety of urological problems, including vesico vaginal fistula, hypospadias, and lymphatic filariasis. Our credo is, “Teach One, Reach Many.”

The IVUmed Traveling Resident Scholar Program gives residents the opportunity to experience urology in a developing world setting. American residents travel with board-certified urologists to partner hospitals abroad to exchange ideas with their hosts and perform procedures such as open stone surgery, benign prostate surgery, hypospadias repair and incontinence procedures.

Residents PGY-3 and above are eligible for the program. If you are interested, please submit the necessary application materials to the IVUmed Program Manager. The application deadline for travel between July 2008 and June 2009 is February 1, 2008. You can find the application and more details at www.IVUmed.com.
2007-2008 Resident Scholar Sites include Mongolia, Egypt, Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Haiti, Nigeria, and Kenya.
