Smile Train and the College of Surgeons of East Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA), hereafter referred to as ‘Participants’, have agreed to collaborate in a programme to provide Smile Train scholarships for selected COSECSA trainees wishing to study plastic surgery in Africa.
The collaboration aims to:
- To attract and select surgeons at the Fellowship of the College of Surgeons (FCS) level who wish to dedicate themselves to a full career as plastic surgeons and as cleft surgeons in Africa.
- To offer training in hospitals based in COSECSA countries for surgeons who demonstrate the greatest potential to become leaders and decision-makers in Plastic surgery.
