The Resident International Anesthesia Scholarship Program, developed by the Committee on Global Humanitarian Outreach (GHO), was inaugurated in 2015.
It is hosted at the CURE Ethiopia Children’s Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Mary Bernard, M.D., and James Layton, M.D., supervise the residents, ensuring they have the opportunity to learn to practice anesthesia in more austere surroundings. As U.S. citizens and ABA board-certified anesthesiologists, both serve with CURE International, a health care network that operates charitable hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide. Dr. Bernard also serves as the hospital’s medical director.
Established in 2008, CURE Ethiopia is primarily a pediatric orthopedic hospital situated in the lovely hills surrounding the capital city of Ethiopia. In addition to Drs. Bernard and Layton, CURE Ethiopia has two full-time, British-trained orthopedic surgeons, two African-trained orthopedic surgeons, three full-time Ethiopian anesthetists, a part-time plastic surgeon, and O.R. and PACU nurses and support staff. In October 2016, they will be adding a third U.K.-trained orthopedic surgeon.
