Anaesthesia training and development in Nepal 1985-1990.

In 1985 a diploma program in anaesthesia was established in Kathmandu, Nepal, as a joint venture between the Institute of Medicine in Kathmandu and the University of Calgary. Development of the program and of the specialty in the capital city of Kathmandu was continuously documented during the next five years by local and visiting faculty. In 1990 teams of two Nepali and one Canadian anaesthetist also conducted a survey of each of the seven 50-100 bed zonal hospitals which did not previously have a trained anaesthetist and which are now staffed by graduates of the diploma program. In 1985 Nepal, with a population of 16 million, had seven trained Nepali anaesthetists all of whom worked in two hospitals in Kathmandu. By the end of 1989, 19 physicians had graduated. Seven of these continue to work in Kathmandu hospitals, nine work in zonal hospitals throughout the country and two are taking higher anaesthesia training in the United Kingdom. Additional Nepali anaesthetists have returned from training abroad, and the Society of Anaesthesiologists of Nepal, which joined the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists in 1988, now has 34 members. An annual anaesthesiology symposium is held, and weekly clinical meetings are organized in the major hospitals in Kathmandu. Anaesthetists who work in the zonal hospitals have limited supplies of drugs and equipment and opportunities for continuing medical education are virtually nonexistent.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[1]
