Research project into the programme

“The feedback on the course has been incredible… all the interviewees have been eager to share anecdotes about their experiences working in low resource hospitals, how formal university education is not preparing them for their roles in the hospital, and how challenging it is to provide user-training to hospital staff when they themselves have never been trained on the equipment…

[There is a] significant role Medical Aid International is playing by providing a course that fills the void left by insufficient local education and the minimal to no after-sales support. “
