SEA-HVO Fellowship Recipients

The following anesthesia residents have been awarded an SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship by the Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO), in collaboration with the Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA).

The SEA-HVO Fellowship allows senior anesthesia residents the opportunity to improve anesthesia care in resource-scarce countries by teaching and mentoring their counterparts. The SEA-HVO Fellows are able to witness a wide range of surgical pathologies and anesthetic techniques not commonly seen in the United States. They learn to communicate more effectively with people from different cultures and observe the realities and constraints of delivering health care in a resource-scarce environment. Most importantly, SEA-HVO Fellows serve as teachers of anesthesia and role models for anesthesia students at HVO project sites and contribute to the safety of future patients receiving anesthesia.
