Unique Fellowship Teaching Opportunity in Tanzania

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 or visit http://www.coedn.org/

Report: Most provinces close to targets for surgical wait times
CTV News
A new report says wait times for key surgeries have held stable for the past five years, even though there have been substantial increases in the number of surgeries being done in some cases. But the relatively rosy national picture obscures the fact that in some parts of the country, patients wait far longer than recommended for hip and knee replacements and cataract surgeries. British Columbia and Nova Scotia in particular fared poorly in the assessment, when compared to other provinces.

Complaints over excessive doctor fees jumped four-fold since 2010
Montreal Gazette
The number of Quebecers filing complaints about excessive fees charged by doctors in private practice has soared by 374 per cent during the past five years, according to newly released figures by the Quebec College of Physicians. In some cases, ophthalmologists have charged hundreds of dollars for eye drops that should cost as little as $20. Increasingly, physicians who perform vasectomies outside of hospital are invoicing patients "accessory" fees that are not permitted under the law.
