Description of request

Mine is a relatively new Department that I have set and we already have an accredited residency program with about 10 resident doctors. We have already graduated a few. We need all the help we can get to improve on our residency training in terms of both quantity and quality, considering that as at now Nigeria has only about 70 Neurosurgeons in the country serving 180 million population.

In Nigeria at the moment, we do not have any robust vascular service. A few centers offer only clipping of aneurysms. No center offers any neuroendovascular service. This means that thousands of patients do not get the most appropriate care they require tailored to their needs. Also the trainees are not exposed to some important requirements of their training, hence reducing both the quality of patient care and the knowledge base of the trainees.

This Request is open to:

  • Trained paediatric neurosurgeon

This Request relates to the following areas of expertise:

  • Vascular neurosurgery

Duration of request

Short-term (1 visit or up to 1 year)
