Sierra Leone, Ethiopia-Anesthesia and Surgery Workforce Analysis

Access to quality operative care is an essential component to a well-rounded healthcare system.  However, advanced surgical are is not possible without the presence of advances in anesthesia care.  Several countries in Africa have such an extremely limited number of anesthesia physicians that even the maintenance of basic anesthesia standards of care is difficult.  Ethiopia is an example of a country that has opportunities for anesthesia residency training but an apparent low level of interest amongst medical students and young physicians to enter anesthesia whereas Sierra Leone also has limited professional interest and students must pursue training outside of the country.

This survey and structured interview based study aims to directly interface with surgeons, medical students and young physicians to identify the factors that result in a disproportionately low pursuit of anesthesiology as a career destination for physicians.
