We send qualified orthopaedic surgeons to SIGN programs to teach the local surgeons the SIGN technique and other orthopaedic procedures needed most at that program. Most trips last just a week or two, but our volunteers find that the value of their training and the friendships they make last a lifetime. We will work with you and the SIGN program to find the optimal training needed and the best time for your visit.
Once you have determined which hospital you want to visit we will put you in touch with the local surgeons to arrange your in-country schedule. They will also help to arrange lodgings.
Here are just a few of the SIGN programs you could visit as a volunteer surgeon.
Muhimbili Orthopaedic Institute (MOI)
Black Lion Hospital
Yangon General Hospital
