Projects in cooperation with the university hospitals in Damascus
In 2018, a training room for the approximately 120 assistant physicians will be set up at the gynecological clinic of Damascus University. The aim of the project is to train doctors in laparoscopic surgical methods (also called laparoscopy or buttonhole surgery). The room will be equipped with a laparoscopy simulator and an electronic library. In addition, fast internet access will be installed and the necessary technical resources made available so that congresses and further-education events can be broadcast and training films watched in future.
With professional and financial support from medipalestine, two operating theatres will be equipped with new laparoscopic instruments. Operations are also carried out jointly in order to network specialist competencies.
With the support of medipalestine, the formation of a tumor board at the Damascus University clinics is being promoted.
In cooperation with Damascus University Hospital, the establishment of a breast centre is being planned.
Project for professional exchange:
We organize and support the participation of Syrian physicians at congresses in Europe and invite them to visit hospitals in Switzerland.
