Opportunities for doctors and midwives to volunteer outside of the UK to support RCOG initiatives
Volunteer with the RCOG in Uganda – Resilience in: Obstetric Skills project 2018
The RCOG, in partnership with Kitovu Hospital and Masaka Regional Referral Hospital, is running a one year project building on the Excellence in: Obstetric Skills Project. Resilience in: Obstetric Skills is funded through the THET Health Partnership Scheme.
This project will provide essential obstetric skills training to staff at these two referral centres and develop local teaching capacity. In addition, it will aim to improve the quality of referrals into the centres from referring facilities. Training is provided by Ugandan Master Trainers and focuses strongly on respectful care, monitoring and predicting emergencies.
We are seeking volunteer trainees and consultants to support the project over the course of this year.
