I visited Korle Bu Surgical Skills Teaching Center located at the Korle Bu Teaching Hopital. It is a separate structure completely refurbished and equipped by Johnson & Johnson and International Aid (a US based charity). They both continue to support the center and its program. The center is used to teach surgical courses for physicians all over Africa. There are plans in the works to expand the teaching program over the next two years. I met with two representatives of International Aid and with a representative of Johnson & Johnson. We had a long and very fruitful discusson of how Interplast might be able to participate in future teaching projects. International Aid is very enthusiastic about our input. The center has four surgical tables where practice surgery is performed using animal subjects.
