We build professional capacity for pediatric emergency and critical care in sub-Saharan Africa through implementation of a sustainable training program. We are focusing on:
Fellowship in Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care (FPECC)
FPECC is a two-year fellowship in Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care geared towards pediatricians from Sub-Saharan Africa. Training occurs at University of Nairobi/ Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi and at A.I.C. Kijabe Hospital in rural Kenya. Fellows are getting trained in management of acutely and critically-ill children in the public and private, urban and rural, tertiary care and district level health care sectors which are all relevant to practitioners in sub-Saharan Africa. Training also includes aspects of cardiac critical care. FPECC training and fellow supervision is provided by a combination of local Kenyan and visiting experts in Pediatric Emergency and Pediatric Critical Care. The first class of PECC fellows was enrolled in January 2019.
The curriculum for the Fellowship in Pediatric Emergency and Critical Care was developed by Pediatric Emergency, Pediatric Critical Care, Pediatric Anesthesia, Pediatric Endocrinology, and Pediatric Pulmonary subspecialists from University of Nairobi, University of Washington/ Seattle Children’s, A.I.C. Kijabe Hospital and Gertrude’s Children’s Hospital. The curriculum has been approved by the University of Nairobi as the accrediting institution. This is the first program of this kind in sub-Saharan Africa.
We are accepting applications for the Fellowship (FPECC) on a rolling basis. Fellowship intake occurs in September and February each year. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about our program or are interested in applying.
The University of Nairobi is accepting fellowship applications from physicians who meet the following admission requirements:
