NDORMS surgeons return from training in Africa
- 12 November 2015
The COSECSA Oxford Orthopaedic Link (COOL) programme which links the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA) and NDORMS at the University of Oxford delivered two surgical courses in Africa last month.
Professor Lavy, who leads the COOL programme, commented, 'It is wonderful to see UK colleagues help strengthen the health workforce overseas in places where there is a real shortage of health workers. These training courses have helped to improve care for many patients affected by musculoskeletal conditions. Moreover, our teams have returned to the UK with a renewed commitment and passion for their clinical practice here.'
