Medical Mission

The inaugural VOOM Foundation Medical Mission took place in May 2011. The Foundation sent a team of eight volunteers to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Enugu (UNTH).

Over 100 prospective and current medical practitioners attended training conducted by the VOOM Foundation volunteers. The training covered:

  • Managing all levels of critically ill patients
  • Retooling Intensive Care Units
  • Emergency training
  • Emergency Room management
  • Biomedical technology

The mission opened up a networking relationship between the VOOM Foundation and Nigerian medical practitioners. It also helped VOOM identify areas of focus to include in future missions.
