About ASA/CASIEF in Rwanda

gorilla-baby.jpg  The Rwanda Anesthesiology Teaching Program began in January 2006 as a partnership between the National University of Rwanda, the Canadian Anesthesiologist Society’s International Educational Foundation (CASIEF), and the American Society of Anesthesiologists Overseas Teaching Program (ASAOTP). The goal is to build capacity for anesthesia training in Rwanda so that, over time, there will be enough local staff anesthesiologists to run the program with minimal international support. The visiting US and Canadian staff volunteer their time by conducting formal didactic teaching as well as peri-operative clinical instruction.
