[August 7, 2019] - Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) is pleased to announce the launch of a new obstetrics and gynecology (Ob-Gyn) project in partnership with Kabale University School of Medicine (KABSOM) in Kabale, Uganda.

Working with the academic staff of KABSOM, HVO volunteers will support the training of medical students and residents in Ob-Gyn. Volunteers will provide clinical and didactic training to obstetric staff in subspecialty skills and obstetric topics. Volunteers will also work with pediatrics, nursing and midwifery staff to improve skills and knowledge. Training will include neonatal and pediatric resuscitation, as well as simulation training in postpartum hemorrhage and eclampsia .
Assignments are one to four weeks. Volunteers must be board-eligible physicians in the areas of general obstetrics and gynecology, urogynecology, oncology or maternal-fetal medicine. Volunteers may either be retired or in active practice. Final year residents will also be considered if accompanied by a qualified attending.
