Tenwek’s Latest Residency & Fellowship Graduates

Tenwek Hospital’s Residency and Fellowship programs address the critical need to train, disciple, and equip the next generation of African physicians to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ throughout the continent. To fulfill this mission, Tenwek has strategic partnerships with the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS) and the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA).

Tenwek held its eighth PAACS commencement ceremony at the end of January.

The graduates are (L to R): Dr. Marvin Wekesa – Orthopedic Surgery; Dr. Fridah Orwa – General Surgery; Dr. Kimutai Sylvester – General Surgery; Dr. Sinkeet Ranketi – General Surgery; and Dr. Arega Fekadu Leta – Cardiothoracic Surgery.

Dr. Fekadu Leta is the first Cardiothoracic surgeon to graduate from the PAACS program at Tenwek and was the highest scorer for the Cardiothoracic Surgery fellowship exam administered by COSECSA.

Dr. Wekesa is the fourth graduate from the PAACS orthopedic residency program. Following graduation, he joined the faculty at Tenwek.

Tenwek’s Dr. Fridah Bosire earned the highest score in COSECSA’s General Surgery fellowship exam and was awarded the 2020 Gerald O’Sullivan medal. This annual award recognizes the surgical fellow who graduates at the top of the class at the annual COSESCA exams.

Congratulations to all!
