2017-06-13 08:21 | OMI Satellite Symposia in Tanzania

In May 2017, Dr. Roy “Trip” Gulick from the New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, travelled to Mwanza for the first OMI Satellite Symposium in Tanzania.

Dr. Gulick was invited for a one-day symposium featuring lectures on the role of a tertiary/consultant hospital in the management of Infectious Diseases. His talks included information on the Infectious Diseases Division at the New York Presbyterian Hospital, HIV-Tuberculosis Co-Infection; and Drug Resistance and the Future of Infectious Diseases. The lectures were followed by case presentations from local fellows and a hospital visit with ward rounds at Weill Bugando Hospital.

46 doctors from Mwanza and surrounding areas took part in the lectures and lively, interactive discussions, and all look forward to a closer collaboration in the future.
