Impact of Coronavirus

The PECC – Kenya fellowship is continuing as scheduled during the coronavirus outbreak.  PECC – Kenya is the only program in East Africa that is helping prepare pediatric critical care resources for the coming patient surge, making the continued training of our students vital. In addition to the clinical training our fellows receive from local Kenyan faculty, we have also expanded our remote lecture series to bridge the gap until visiting faculty can fully return to Kenya. 

If you are pediatric emergency medicine or critical care physician that is interested in supporting the PECC-Kenya fellowship by providing an online lecture please contact us at
