"The University of Mansoura’s Faculty of Medicine is the third largest medical school in Egypt, containing a multiple hospital medical complex, including a stand-alone children’s hospital, and Mansouras University Childrens Hospital (MUCH). This trip we will participate in a week long medical mission with the Faculty of medicine at MUCH. Our time in Mansoura will include a combination of a teaching and service model. the partnership with the young faculty will include screening patients and operating on several complex pediatric laparoscopic cases and working with the local team on cleft lips and cleft palates.
As with any other global service opportunity, the resource constrained environment allows us to test the limits of our competency in the surgical care of children. We must alter our treatments and techniques to the tools and resources available in the particular environment we are asked to serve in. The trip will be rounded out with training and education for Surgeons, bedside rounds, intraoperative teaching and didactics, discussion and mentoring of the trainees including desgin of masters’ projects and research designs. All activities will continue remotely with the relationships built during this week long mission, with plans to continue working remotely until our next opportunity for travel between the institutions.
