Apply here: https://my.corehr.com/pls/coreportal_rcsip/erq_jobspec_details_form.jobspec?p_id=026352

The RCSI/COSECSA Collaboration Programme (CP) is a partnership between RCSI and COSECSA (the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa). Its objective is to achieve better-quality surgical care for more patients in sub-Saharan Africa. The CP began as a project in RCSI’s Department of Surgical Affairs (DoSA) before receiving grant funding from the Irish government’s overseas aid programme, Irish Aid. The CP is now entering its 14th year and is now based in the Institute of Global Surgery (IGS) at RCSI.

Over that time, the CP has grown to become one of the largest surgical training partnerships in the world through its capacity building, “whole-college” approach. 559 specialist surgeons have graduated from COSECSA’s training programme, which the CP supports. In 2019, the CP began working with CANECSA (the College of Anaesthetists of East, Central and Southern Africa) and CAI (the College of Anaesthesiologists of Ireland) to also build the anaesthesia workforce in sub-Saharan Africa.  

The projected budget for the CP 2021-2024 is €2M. Additionally, RCSI will provide in-kind support valued at €1.2M during this four-year period. The overall funding to support this role is for 4 years, subject to an annual review.
