The Dana Farber/Boston Children’s partnership with 57357
Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt (CCHE) continues this summer with our first
group of Fellows. The four 57357 fellows
started their observership on July 18 and will be rotating through
August 26, 2016. They will rotate in the services of Solid Tumors,
Neuro-oncology, Stem Cell Transplant and Hematological Malignancies.
The Global Oncology Fellowship Program is
a formal partnership between Dana Farber/Boston Children’s and CCHE that has existed since 2012. This collaborative project creates a
post-doctoral pediatric oncology training program for physicians from all over
the Middle East and North Africa, including Ethiopia. The 30-month fellowship program, based
primarily at CCHE in Cairo, includes onsite and online training sessions from
Dana Farber/Boston Children’s faculty, clinical assignments, mentoring, research projects co-supervised
by Dana-Farber/CCHE faculty, and live telemedicine lectures in Cairo. The fellowship also requires a 6-week session
of training at Dana Farber/Boston Children’s in Boston where fellows shadow Dana Farber/Boston Children’s faculty as they treat
and diagnose patients, attend training and lectures with our Dana Farber/Boston Children’s fellows and
receive one-on-one mentoring from our world-renowned physicians.

Farewell to Spring GLOBE Scholars!
The Three Spring GLOBE Scholars
It was a
pleasure hosting our Spring Pediatrics Global Oncologyand
Blood Disorders Education Program (GLOBE) Scholars! Three physicians from Nigeria,
Kenya and India spent 8 weeks week us from May 16th until July 8th
and rotated in the services of Solid Tumors, Neuro-oncology, Hematology
and Hematological Malignancies.
Jaspreet Gharial from Kenya, Saroj Panda from India, and Olufemi Adefehinti
from Nigeria , had the opportunity to observe on rounds, attend conferences and
give presentations on their GLOBE experience and efforts to advance pediatric
oncology and hematology in their countries.
Upon departure, Dr. Jaspreet
Gharial wanted to share these thoughts with our Faculty and Staff: “William Ward once said, ‘The mediocre
teacher tells. The good teacher
explains. The superior teacher
demonstrates and the great teachers inspires.’
Thank you for inspiring us.”
