First PIOA module in PNG

In 2 weeks we will hold the first ever PIOA module in Madang, PNG. The module will be held from 29 January to 15 February 2018 and will cover Trauma and Research.

PNG has the largest population among the Pacific Island countries with approximately 7 million people most of whom live in remote areas with limited clinical services. PIOA hopes to train enough PNG doctors over the next few years to have orthopaedically trained surgeons in at least 18 centres around PNG. We already have trainees in 4 centres.

Name tags with flags of the trainees who will be attending this module.
