The Ob/Gyn Residency program now sends its residents to a one month rotation in Malawi, Africa. The Malamulo Adventist Hospital is a rural tertiary-care facility that provides a learning environment from which our residents will gain a deeper understanding of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the context of international health. Residents will practice and provide women's health care in a resource limited setting. In the video below, 2017 Ob/Gyn resident graduates Malcolm Hardy and An Pham talk about their experiences while on this rotation.

While at Malamulo, residents work closely with an Ob/Gyn Board Certified Doctor.  

Some of the learning objectives for this rotation include:

  1. Learning about the risks and benefits of operative versus non-operative treatment in a limited resource environment
  2. Show compassion and integrity in the care of patients
  3. Learn how to utilize resources wisely and effectively to treat the most patients
  4. Tailor treatment plans for a resource challenged environment
  5. Communicate with patients and their families in easily understood and culture-sensitive language
