Orthopaedic Surgery Residency: International Program

The UCLA Department of Orthopaedic Surgery sends between 3-6 residents per year to Soddo Christian Hospital in Soddo, Ethiopia. Residents and faculty travel to Ethiopia for 3-week blocks to perform surgeries, teach local medical students and residents, and participate in an exchange of ideas regarding providing surgical care in resource sparse environments. This partnership helps to provide care for the underserved in Ethiopia and neighboring Eritrea and Somalia.
