Kenya Initiative

In March 2017, Dr. Peter Schulam traveled to Nanyuki, Kenya to establish a partnership between the Laikipia County Health Department, Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital, and Yale New Haven Hospital. As part of the agreement, Yale Urology will send two teams per year, consisting of one faculty member and one PGY4 resident, to Nanyuki, Kenya to provide educational and clinical urologic training to local physicians beginning this spring. 

On April 27, 2018, Dr. John Colberg and Dr. Campbell Bryson, surgical resident, began their journey to Kenya. Daily updates are available below the photo gallery.

Day One

After 27 hours of travel (New Haven to JFK Airport to Amsterdam to Nairobi to Nanyuki) and one flat tire at the airport, John Colberg and Campbell Bryson have arrived in Kenya! Thanks to the assistance of their driver, Kennedy, after a 3.5 hour ride from Nairobi Colberg and Bryson arrived safe and sound at their hotel in Nanyuki at 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Today is the first day where Colberg and Bryson will see patients at the Nanyuki Teaching and Referral Hospital, so we are all looking forward to their next update. For reference, Kenya is 7 hours ahead of us in Connecticut.
