Telemedicine is a concept we’re hearing more and more about in the non-profit health world. As technology improves and as global networks expand, it has become a tool particularly exciting for those working with healthcare in distant or underresourced settings.

At Mission: Restore, we have recently been using our telemedicine platform to connect resident surgeons at the Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi with residents at the New York Medical College at Westchester Medical Center as part of a reconstructive surgery lecture series. Through resident case presentations and guest lectures, the program leverages tech to promote collaborative learning, real-time, between future surgical leaders in the U.S. and East Africa.

Whether it’s connecting residents across continents or maintaining relationships between surgeons and surgeon educators, telemedicine plays a critical role in our goal of bridging the global surgical gap and building local and international surgical networks.
