Start
Fulbright Academy of Minimally Invasive Surgery TTT Program for developing countries

Inspired and supported by Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas, the world-renowned uniportal VATS guru, Fulbright Medical initiated the Fulbright Academy of Minimally Invasive Surgery TTT (Train The Trainers) Program in July 2019. The initiative brings advanced surgical techniques and affordable medical hardware to practicing surgeons in developing countries who have access to fewer resources to carry out their practice.

Development
Since the kickoff session in Myanmar in October 2019, where the first thoracoscopic surgery was historically executed by Dr. Diego and local Myanmar surgeons, the program has been successfully implemented in more than 10 countries, including: Laos, Myanmar, Algeria, Palestine, Djibouti, Cote D 'Ivoire, Lebanon, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, Guatemala, and more.
