MSF – Gaza Doctors

Erin Kilborn 

Erin shares her experience of how she trained a group of 14 doctors in Gaza to use ultrasound by a combination of live and online teaching with trainers based in New York and Barcelona and Berlin with MSF- it was groundbreaking because it’s never been done like this before by the MSF diagnostic imaging team, and it’s primarily thanks to the hard work and baseline level of education and training of the Gaza doctors that it worked so well- and continues to work well.

Now we have a research proposal in the pipeline and hope to demonstrate the utility of ultrasound imaging for soft tissue and bone infections in patients with osteomyelitis as a result of trauma sustained largely during the great March of return- there’s a big cohort in Gaza of complex patients requiring long term follow up by ortho/plastics/antibiotic stewardship and micro teams- it’s a huge challenge and super interesting to see where this might take us.

The most exciting element of all is that if this is demonstrated to be a valid imaging modality for the diagnosis and/or follow up of this pathology it could be extremely useful in other parts of the world where access to the gold standard of imaging, namely MRI or CT (or sometimes even plain film XR) is limited or non-existent.  Given the current ongoing restrictions on travel, it means that important essential research and training can still continue thanks to innovation, technology, dedication, and hard work

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
