In 2016, Dr. Ronald Tubasiime graduated from General Surgery residency in Ethiopia. Through a CAHO scholarship, he trained at one of the residency programs developed by the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (see www.paacs.net for more information). Soon after graduation, he passed rigorous examinations to become a fellow of the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and South Africa (COSECSA).
Dr. Ronald has been working full-time at Kibogora since his graduation. Supported by many visiting surgeons from the U.S. and Germany, he has developed a broad-based surgery practice at Kibogora, which has gained a reputation throughout the country as a center for excellent surgical care. Dr. Ronald attributes this reputation and his success to God’s blessing. He remains humble and grateful for the opportunity to touch many lives with the love of Christ.
In 2019, Kibogora received the honor of becoming a COSECSA-certified surgical training site.
Following this certification, the University of Rwanda General Surgery Residency began sending its trainees to Kibogora for “rural surgery” rotations. They work closely with Dr. Ronald and visiting surgeons to care for a wide variety of surgical problems. They also hear regularly from Dr. Ronald about the gospel and how the love of Christ compels him to serve the poor at Kibogora.
Donations to CAHO help support the surgery program at Kibogora, enabling the hospital to provide quality surgical care in the name of Christ to all who have need.
