David Dahl, MD, resident in the Anesthesiology Residency Program at the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine, was among nine nationwide residents awarded the Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA)-Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) Traveling Fellowship Award. Fellows will serve a one-month assignment at an HVO anesthesia training site in Ethiopia, Peru or South Africa.
The SEA-HVO Fellowship allows senior anesthesia residents the opportunity to improve anesthesia care in developing countries by teaching and mentoring their counterparts. The SEA-HVO Fellows will be challenged to learn about diseases which are rare in the United States but becoming less so with globalization.
HVO is a private non-profit organization which is dedicated to improving global health through education and training. HVO was started in 1986 and has 13 active program areas in addition to anesthesia and more than 85 clinical education programs in 25 developing countries.
In 2001, HVO and SEA began a partnership to sponsor a fellowship aimed at encouraging anesthesiologists to develop interests in both teaching and volunteer service early in their career. The Society for Education in Anesthesia (SEA) is a non-profit organization for anesthesiologists interested in advancing anesthesia education.
