We are delighted to welcome 3 plastic surgeons from Pristina University Hospital, Kosova to University Hospital Galway for a 2 week training observership. Dr.s Zejne Buja, Shkelqim Derguti and Ylber Zejnullahu have all worked with Mr McCann during his visits to Pristina and have been to Tirana to participate in our micro surgery missions and training conferences there over the years. All 3 completed a course in micro surgery in London from July 9th to 13th, with the support of the International Organisation for Migration. We were delighted to join forces with IOM in order to arrange an onward visit to Ireland.
Special thanks to the consultants and teams of the Plastic Surgery Department, to GUH administration for facilitating the visit and to the Irish Consulate in Belgrade for working tirelessly to process visas for the doctors.
We wish them a successful placement and hope they enjoy Galway in the Summertime.
