Eyad was part of our postgraduate training programme for 2 years at King’s College London Hospital in orthopaedic surgery. He returned to Palestine in 2016 and now works at the Arab Care Hospital in Ramallah.
“I had huge benefit from my training. King’s College is a trauma centre, so I was able to increase my experience in orthopaedic trauma, as well as my specialty training as I did fellowship in knee and shoulder surgery. It was great experience. I learnt a lot!
When I went back home I started to apply things I learnt clinically. In the past there was no shoulder and advanced knee surgery, so any case had to be transferred outside Palestine. So to some extent I have reduced the number of cases that have needed to be transferred.
In the future, I’m planning to engage myself in the general sector to continue to reduce the number of transferred cases; also if I can I will help in teaching. Also I will continue to develop myself and to have new experiences, so I can help our people.”
