West Africa: Three KATH Doctors Excel

Three doctors of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) have made the management proud, having excelled at the West African College of Physicians and Surgeons.

They are Dr. Nimako Boateng, Dr. Rita Larsen-Reindorf and Dr. Fauster Kwawununu.

The three, according to the CEO of KATH, Prof. Ohene Adjei, were among the seven best senior specialists who graduated from the West African College of Physicians and Surgeons in 2010.

He said while Dr. Nimako Boateng was first in Paediatric surgery, Dr. Rita Larsen-Reindorf topped in ENT, with Dr. Fauster Kwawununu excelling in Obstetrics and gynaecology.

Prof. Ohene Adjei said the feat of the three specialists makes KATH a leading medical training centre in West Africa.

He announced that new training programmes had been introduced for the staff, and that the first batch of students in the two-year Emergency Nursing (BSc degree) for specialist nurses has just passed out under the University of Michigan and Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons.

The CEO also announced that a one year Diploma programme in emergency medicine, the first of its kind in West Africa, had taken off to upgrade the skills of staff.
