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.

Our long-term goal is to establish a Pan-Canadian approach to preventing osteoarthritis and delivering care that is evidence-based and patient-centred. The Committee meets in person twice annually and quarterly by teleconference to discuss best practices for delivering OA care and address knowledge gaps through innovative pathway analysis and outcomes measurement.

Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting

The Canadian Orthopaedic Association is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Dr. Cy Frank on Thursday, March 5. alt

Dr. Frank was a true leader and spent more than three decades devoting his life to improving health outcomes. His many contributions to medicine as a surgeon, teacher, mentor, world-renowned researcher and advocate for positive change in public health care have profoundly impacted the lives of Canadians. His role in the Canadian health-care sector has benefited people from coast-to-coast and will have longstanding impact for generations to come.

Previously, Dr. Frank held the positions of President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation and Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society. He was awarded an Order of Canada last year for his contributions to advancing orthopedic health care services in Alberta, and for his scientific contributions to bone and joint repair research.

Our condolences are extended to his family, many friends and colleagues.

“I am inspired by what the future holds for orthopaedics and how innovation can continue to progress and evolve to better serve the citizens of this great country” – Cy Frank
