Description

I am Dr. Ayun K. Cassell III, a Liberian by birth and ethnicity. Liberia is a third world nation amongst the poorest in Africa. The health system in Liberia has remained fragile over the years. Currently there is no practicing Urologist in Liberia. Among all the triviality, I have completed my medical school in Liberia as well as a full specialty training in General Surgery in 2018. Currently, I am a Specialist Registrar in Urology at Grand Yoff Hospital (l’Institut pour la Formation et la Recherche en Urologie et Santé Familiale (IFRU-SF)), DAKAR, SENEGAL. Thereafter, I am to return to Liberia so serve as a trainer in the health system in October 2020. It is so critical that we have a lot of urological disease burden that is not being met by the health system. A few Urologist comes to LIberia on a quarterly basis just for postgraduate training. My interest remains to attend the to the rising urological burden and assist in the medical education in Liberia, a void that needs to be filled. I believe that InterSurgeon is the appropriate partner to help foster Urological care in Liberia through teaching. I believe if I am given this opportunity, I can be a great help to my Country Liberia in providing a critical mass for health care delivery and medical training.
