The SEA-HVO Fellowship allows senior anesthesia residents the opportunity to improve anesthesia care in resource-scarce countries by teaching and mentoring their counterparts. The SEA-HVO Fellows are able to witness a wide range of surgical pathologies and anesthetic techniques. They learn to communicate more effectively with people from different cultures and observe the realities and constraints of delivering health care in a resource-scarce environment. SEA-HVO Fellows serve as teachers of anesthesia and role models for anesthesia students at HVO project sites. They develop the knowledge, skills and passion necessary to become leaders in global health, contributing to safe anesthesia care around the world now and for years to come.
The SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship would not be possible without the generous support of Dr. Jo Davies, Dr. Chris and Rebecca Dobson, Dr. Lena E. Dohlman, Dr. Lisa Feintech, Dr. Gary E. Loyd, and numerous other SEA members
