A Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship has been established at the Cure Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
American anesthesiology residents increasingly seek to understand, and wish to practice, anesthesiology in less resource-intensive environments outside the borders of the United States.
McCunn et al.1  performed a survey of U.S. anesthesiology residents and noted that 91 percent of those surveyed indicated an interest in global health outreach despite the fact that fewer than half had participated in a global health outreach medical mission. More recently, another survey demonstrated that at least 47 percent of first-year residents entering into an anesthesiology residency this past year plan on incorporating global health work into their practice following residency (Dr. Faye Evans, personal communication).
