The current training programme has been running for 2 weeks and has responded to the needs identified by the local nursing and medical school. Several ATLS courses have been run and nurse trainers have been trained. The trainers included surgeons from Knoxville and South Africa. In future, the plan is to have further similar courses and operating theatre and ICU courses run from the facility.
Prof Roy King is a pathologist from Knoxville and he has coordinated a programme of pathology teaching for the local medical school. Judy Whittaker has joined him in giving a series of lectures.
