In his own words:
I’m currently working as acting Chief Medical officer in orthopaedics at Labasa Hospital (only divisional hospital in northern fiji serving a population of 150000).
Thanks to PIOA for what it has done for me in regards to :
Improve my theoretical orthopedic knowledge.
Taught me the importance of taking a proper history and examination.
Improve my surgical skills .
Continuous CME every Sunday.
Arranging individual mentoring with senior orthopaedic doctors from Australia/ NZ.
Provide a platform for discussion of cases and treatment plan.
Arranging for visitation of orthopedic team to our respective hospital to come and help in attending complex cases.
I hope and pray that PIOA will continue to do orthopaedic training in the Pacific.
