Beryl Akinyi Ooro, MBChB, a general surgeon from AIC Kijabe Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya, visited VUMC recently to meet with surgical faculty, residents and medical students, and to observe both in the operating room and at a clinical practice.

AIC Kijabe Hospital is the home site for many international educational and service collaborations involving VUMC faculty, residents and nursing staff, and the Department of General Surgery has been sending residents to rotate at the hospital since 2011.
