Court of Examiners, Final Orthopaedic Fellowship, West African College of Surgeons October 2014

Motec-Life led a 3 man UK team to support the examination faculties of the West African College of Surgeons final fellowship examinations in Accra Ghana. The team was involved in the orthopaedic and cardiothoracic primary and final fellowship examinations in Accra. Prof Nigel Standfield, Mr Peter Dyson and Mr Paul Ofori-Atta were in Accra for five days for the exercise which further strengthened the collaboration between UK (Motec, London School of Postgraduate Surgery, World Orthopaedic Concern UK) and the West African College of Surgeons. The working visit has been one of the best since the establishment of the links 2 years ago. Picture above shows Mr Ofori-Atta (seated centre of picture) and Mr Dyson on his left. Motec expresses appreciation of the work of the volunteers and the WACS executives.
