From now through April 30th, 2018 you can increase your impact. Your gifts to the SEA-HVO fellowship fund will be matched 2:1 by Lena Dohlman, MD, MPH. For every $1 you contribute, Dr. Dohlman will give $2.

Dr. Dohlman has devoted more than 20 years to developing and supporting the SEA-HVO Traveling fellowship program.

“I am making this commitment because I believe that the SEA-HVO fellowship offers an enriching experience to anesthesia residents, providing an important perspective that benefits their career and the practice of anesthesia, while improving the knowledge and skills of overseas students as well,” commented Dr. Dohlman. “I’m asking my colleagues to join me in this investment.”

The SEA-HVO Fellowship provides senior anesthesia residents the opportunity to improve anesthesia care in developing countries by teaching and mentoring their counterparts. The SEA-HVO Fellows will be challenged to learn about diseases which are rare in the United States while also learning to communicate more effectively with people from different cultures. They will be exposed to the realities and constraints of delivering health care in a resource scarce environment.

Every year 30 to 40 residents apply for this fellowship. The number of residents selected is dependent on the number of fellowships available. Please contribute to give anesthesia residents the opportunity to teach and make anesthesia safer in developing countries.

Use the online form on the HVO website to make a one-time tax deductible donation to the SEA-HVO Traveling Fellowship.
