Children's Surgery International (CSI) is proud to announce a monumental step in our partnership with Bahir Dar University College of Medicine and Health Sciences (BDU). CSI and BDU have envisioned a program that moves beyond self sufficiency to train future generations of Pediatric Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgeons across Ethiopia and advances our mission of reducing healthcare disparities.
On March 18, 2023, Siva Chinnadurai, MD, MPH, Chair of CSI Board of Directors, and Professor Yeshigeta Gelaw, MD, M.Med, FCOphth(ECSA), Chief Executive Director of Bahir Dar University College of Health Science, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the first Pediatric Otolaryngology and Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship in Ethiopia. This fellowship is the result of 8 years of partnership and nearly a year of program development.
The program will feature contributions from internationally recognized Pediatric Otolaryngologists and Facial Plastic Surgeons from across the United States and Ethiopia and will strengthen our joint focus on advanced teaching, clinical and technical skill transfer, and research collaboration.
