Opportunity Description

  1. Background

The government of Rwanda is dedicated to addressing healthcare challenges through evidence-based and innovative approaches. To tackle issues like healthcare worker shortages, education, employment, retention, and compensation, Rwanda has developed effective strategies outlined in the fourth Health Sector Strategic Plan 2018-24 (HSSP IV) and the National Strategy for Health Professions Development (2020-2030). These initiatives aim to enhance the availability and provision of high-quality healthcare services by ensuring a skilled, competent, and equitably distributed healthcare workforce. To achieve this goal, the government has launched ‘The 4×4 Reform’, a national strategy that aims to quadruple healthcare worker production within four years. This transformative initiative seeks to increase enrollment and expand training capacities in both public and private institutions, thereby increasing the number of qualified healthcare professionals and promoting an equitable distribution of the workforce across Rwanda. By implementing ‘The 4×4 Reform’, the strategic objective is to improve access to quality care and establish a sustainable healthcare system that effectively meets the needs of the population.

As a result, the Ministry of Health, in partnership with the University of Rwanda and the Rwanda Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RSOG), is initiating the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Residency Training Program in selected level two teaching hospitals nationwide. This program aims to cultivate an academic environment within these hospitals that not only provides essential obstetrics and gynaecology (OBGYN) knowledge and skills but also encourages innovation, research, and ethical practices. Emphasizing practical learning experiences, the program aims to equip residents with a deep understanding of clinical practices and technologies. This postgraduate residency training will be integrated into the University of Rwanda’s existing training program.
