Unique Fellowship Teaching Opportunity in Tanzania
COA
Children's Orthopaedics Education for Developing Nations (COEDN) invites active and retired paediatric orthopaedic surgeons to "teach the teachers" in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania. This unique, sustainable program will commence September 15, 2015 and run for a year. We are booking volunteer surgeons for 3-4 week assignments. We will train 3 carefully selected fellows all there is to know about paediatric orthopaedics. Two to three trainees will stay on at the Muhimbili Orthopedic Institute (MOI) and join the only pedipod (the program director) currently in Tanzania, a country of 50 million (50% of the population is under 18 y.o.). This core of pedipods will become the nucleus for a permanent fellowship training program for the east Africa region.

This model has great potential to be exported to other subspecialties and medical disciplines in the future. All volunteer surgeons' airfare, room and board will be paid for. Click here for more information. Interested parties may contact Dr. Mark A. Barry drmbarry@mac.com visit http://www.coedn.org/

Building a better hip implant
London Free Press
A "smart" implant designed by four Western University undergrads could be a game changer for hip replacements. That's especially important as the population ages — almost 500,000 hip replacement surgeries were done in North America in 2013. But 35,000 procedures were surgeries to fix loose implants due to bone weakening. The Western students have developed an implant that gathers data and wirelessly sends the information to a doctor.
