Education Conference

In October, Operation Smile hosted an education conference for medical volunteers from Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. The volunteers came together for classroom-style and hands-on training to prepare them for upcoming surgical programs and to move towards full credentialing. The conference included life support courses, a one-day lecture-based component, and two days of surgeries and hands-on training. The full group of volunteers met for lectures on Operation Smile’s Global Standards and credentialing process, education strategies, and upcoming programs of scale, then split into lectures with instructors of their own specialties.

The volunteers who attended the education conference included surgeons, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, dentists, and nurses. They are active volunteers in their home countries, and will continue to contribute to Operation Smile in the coming years. By investing in their education and training, Operation Smile strives to improve the quality of care provided by health care professionals both on our missions, and in their home practices, now and into the future.
