Programme Manager & Executive Assistant to Professor Chris Lavy

I manage several of NDORMS' health partnership projects to support surgical training and research in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Through COSECSA Oxford Orthopaedic Link (COOL) - a multi-country programme in partnership with the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA) - I organise orthopaedic surgical training courses in the COSECSA countries delivered by volunteer UK surgeons and local faculty, clinical fellowships in paediatric orthopaedics for local surgical trainees at specialist children’s hospitals in the region, basic trauma management courses, and related research and evaluation projects.

In the Africa Clubfoot Training project, I have coordinated the development of standardised clubfoot provider training materials and instructor training materials, and subsequent roll-out of the training materials across Africa and beyond.

I am part of the Oxford University Global Surgery Group, and I also provide research management support for University of Oxford's role in SURG-Africa, an EU Horizons 2020 project focusing on strengthening surgical care in district hospitals in Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania.
