At Engineering World Health, it is very important to us that the volunteers we place in our partner hospitals have the skills they need to make a significant and positive impact. All of our Institute participants receive training before working on medical equipment. While our Campus-to-Country programs all train participants at their home universities, EWH’s instructors train participants in-country for our core Summer Institute programs. In just four weeks of intense class and lab work, our instructors cover the function and use of medical equipment, how it typically breaks down in low-resource settings, and how to repair it with the resources available in-country. We depend greatly on their troubleshooting experience and expertise. We are incredibly fortunate to work with such talented instructors who are passionate about sharing their knowledge with the next generation of problem solvers.
It is an honor to introduce our good friends:
