The Training of Surgeons in Africa
 
 Operating room teaching as well as formal lectures
 
 
 The work and surgical challenges in Africa are unique and I am involved in different capacities to train trainee surgeons and plastic surgeons for the work in Africa.
 
1. Trainee plastic surgeons work with me on the Africa Mercy from countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United States of America and Australia.

2. With PAACS I am involved in teaching general surgeons in training about the principles of plastic and reconstructive surgery problems that they might encounter and where no plastic surgeons are available.
