Project Details

This project is best suited to a Masters thesis for candidates with a strong interest in global health.

The Australian and New Zealand Gastroenterology International Training Association has been building capacity in the discipline of gastroenterology in the Pacific for the last 10 years.

The project aims to document the development of competent services in interventional endoscopy spawned by the program in Fiji over this period, the transfer of skills to the trainees from across the Pacific, the functionality of endoscopy services implemented in home centres of trainees from across the Pacific after attendance at one or more of the training programs and the barriers to implementation of endoscopy services if and where they exist across sovereign states in the south and north Pacific. This will inform a strategy to address any limitations and barriers where they exist. The program may involve some experience in Fiji and possibly other Pacific countries for data collection.
