Committee Mission Statement

The committee works through education and overseas teaching Fellowships to promote the safety and quality of anesthetics given in the developing world. The committee encourages SEA members to learn lessons about intercultural communication, conservation of resources, and management of conditions not commonly seen in the US.

Goals and Objectives

  • Maintain the number of scholarships for the SEA HVO Traveling Fellowship.
  • Help improve the committee’s portion of the SEA web site.
  • Work on summary teaching aids for the developing world.
  • We will continue to try to improve the SEA web site as a resource for anesthesiologists interested in working in a developing country as educators or for professional development.
  • We will continue to develop Teaching Aids for students in developing countries, with a view to distributing them through mobile apps and educational websites, as well as sending them in digital format with SEA/HVO Fellows when they go on their trips. We will be using the Stanford and Harvard emergency checklists in addition to our own, with plans to adapt them (with the backing of the authors) to specific sites.
  • Lena Dohlman has set up a Global Health program at Harvard and is working with colleagues from this committee and outside to develop a Global Health curriculum to base other programs on.
  • To create a roster of former Fellows to see whether they have stayed in academics and if they have continued to volunteer.
