About the Residents Day:
The Ethiopian Residents Day is an event held to celebrate the collaborative work of Ethiopian Orthopaedic Residents and Trauma and Orthopaedic (T&O) Registrars in the Northwest.
Your Role as a Registrar:
The aim of this scheme is to pair T&O Registrars from the Northwest of England with Ethiopian Residents (mainly working in T&O) to facilitate collaborative projects (audits/research). The pair will communicate online to discuss, plan and carry out a small project. This collaboration is expected to last up to 3 months. The project will be presented at the Residents Day in March 2019.
Who can Participate:
Orthopaedic trainees in the Northwest can take part. Orthopaedic trainees who are situated elsewhere in the UK are also welcome to participate following approval from their program director.
Please contact Dr Gwenllian Tawy if you wish to be involved in the 3rd Ethiopian Residents Day:
The Residents Day is supported by the Programme Directors in Ethiopia (Dr. Biruk Lambisso and Dr. Worku), the Programme Director of the Northwest Deanery (Mr. Jaysheel Mehta), NOTAA, The John Charnley Trust, World Orthopaedic Concern (UK), and AO Alliance Foundation.
