Applications for the 2013 Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) – Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) Traveling Fellowship are being accepted as of December 3, 2012. All applications must be received by close of business on February 7, 2013.
Senior anesthesia residents interested in spending 3-4 weeks teaching at an HVO anesthesia site in a developing country are invited to apply. The successful applicant will be exposed to a wide range of surgical pathologies and anesthetic techniques not commonly seen in the United States. He/she will learn to communicate more effectively with people from different cultures and will be exposed to the realities and constraints of delivering health care in a resource scarce environment. The resident will be challenged to be flexible and creative in problem solving. Fellows will serve as teachers of anesthesia and as role models for the anesthesia students at the site.
The applicant must have completed two years of anesthesia training and be in an ACGME accredited anesthesia residency at the time of travel overseas. The award will be presented at the annual SEA meeting (May 31 - June 2, 2013) in Salt Lake City, Utah. HVO will coordinate plans for the overseas assignment to occur prior to the end of the resident's training. Round trip travel to the site will be funded and a stipend given to help defray living expenses.
Electronic submission is required.
The application deadline is February 7, 2013.
