OMI Visiting Professorship in Urology in Dodoma, Tanzania

Prof. Mesut Remzi (Medical University of Vienna) and Dr. Cornelia Radon (Austrian Society of Urology) spent ten days at the Benjamin Mkapa Hospital in Dodoma, Tanzania. During that time, they held lectures and hands on workshops on Laparoscopic Surgery, consulted on how to conduct clinical research and publish scientific papers, and advised on professional development, based on their own professional experience. Prof. Remzi and Dr. Radon were the first to perform laparoscopic kidney and adrenal surgeries at the Benjamin Mkapa Hospital. In addition, they established laparoscopic orchiopexy for the pediatric population. Throughout the Visiting Professorship, the OMI Faculty saw 106 patients during clinic sessions.
