Global Health MFM Opportunity in Africa
The Department of Ob/Gyn at Tenwek Mission Hospital in Kenya is in need of Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists to spend at least two weeks working with their Kenyan and American general Ob/Gyn staff physicians caring for high-risk obstetric patients. This hospital serves as a referral center for a large area and cares for many complicated patients, currently delivering more than 300 babies a month. The physician will need to be able to perform and teach ultrasounds, take labor and delivery call, and perform cesarean deliveries. There are medical officers and clinical officers to teach and a soon-to-be Ob/Gyn residency. This hospital is part of the SMFM African Alliance under SMFM Global Health. If interested, please visit at www.Tenwekhospital.org and contact Dr. Phil Greig at firstname.lastname@example.org or (864)-616-6243.
