WFSA Education Committee Update October 2012
The Education Committee has had a busy six
months since the World Congress in Buenos Aires.
The committee’s mission is to enhance
patient care worldwide by working collaboratively to create, develop and
strengthen anaesthesiology education and training.
The WFSA fellowship training programmes
form a large part of the committee’s work.
These programmes exist only because of the untiring work of local
anaesthesiologists and 2012 has seen fellows training in India, Thailand, South
Africa, Israel, Colombia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil.
A number of programmes are “in the
pipeline”, including a paediatric anaesthesia programme in Nairobi, Kenya, and a
WFSA-ESA fellowship in St Petersburg, Russia.
The Education Committee has also been
involved with a number of other projects, including the Palestine Anesthesia
Training Mission, and support for a number of regional meetings.
