Human Resources for Health Rwanda
Brown is part of a consortium of US universities that is recruiting faculty to serve as clinical educators for periods of 1 year or more at the Faculty of Medicine in Kigali, Rwanda. These placements are part of a broader effort to expand medical capacity in the country by rapidly scaling up the healthcare workforce.
Recruitment will occur in February and March of 2012. Decisions regarding placement will be made on or before April 15th of 2012 with start date anticipated to be August 1st of 2012.
Recruitment targets for 2012-2013 include:
2 from emergency medicine
1 from internal medicine
1 from pediatrics
Faculty effort through the program will be divided into 70% clinical education (paired with Rwandan faculty), 20% research in combination with Rwandan faculty and postgraduate residents, and 10% curriculum development and administrative activities. Persons with subspecialty qualification for medicine and pediatrics are encouraged to apply. Faculty will be primarily placed at one of the three primary teaching hospitals CHUK (Kigali), CHUB (Butare), or King Faisal Hospital (Kigali) with the potential for some time spent in provincial hospitals as the program develops.
All faculty will receive an appointment at Brown for the duration of the work in Rwanda. In addition, they will receive active mentorship by Brown faculty with experience in global health.
