Pediatric Residency Rotation at Princess Marina Hospital, Gaborone, Botswana

The CHOP Global Health rotation in Botswana affords a challenging and exciting 4 week experience of in-patient pediatrics for pediatric residents in the developing world. Successful applicants will work side-by-side with local healthcare professionals while benefiting from the mentorship of an on-site US-trained pediatrician.

This dynamic rotation is based at one of the nation's largest healthcare facilities —the Princess Marina Hospital (PMH) in Botswana's capital city of Gaborone. Day-to-day duties include the clinical care of patients (Monday - Friday) with coverage (7 a.m. - 5 p.m.) of one Saturday and Sunday during the rotation. There are no overnight duties.

While in Botswana, you will have the opportunity to present a relevant article at the weekly combined academic journal club. There are tremendous opportunities to learn, see, teach and make a difference as we strive with our partners in Botswana to improve in-patient pediatric care for children in Africa.

Please contact us about trips planned for the the 2011-2012 academic year.
