Congratulations to Dr. Henry Chege from Moi University in Kenya for completing the IGCS Gynecologic Oncology Global Curriculum & Mentorship Program!

Dr. Henry Chege
Moi University, Kenya

“I thank all of you for the support you accorded me during the IGCS fellowship training. To the international mentors Prof. Barry and Prof. Al Covens, thank you for taking time to travel all the way to Kenya to supervise the training. I will always be indebted to these great mentors.”

This fellowship program is the first fellowship in any medical field approved by Moi University. The IGCS Global Curriculum was established in 2017 under the leadership of then-President, Michael Quinn. It is a comprehensive two-year education and training program designed for regions around the world that do not currently have formal training in gynecologic oncology.

Dr. Barry Rosen, International Mentor congratulates Dr. Chege: "You made a very impressive, total commitment Henry, giving up your clinic practice, giving up money you would have made to do this training. And you had delays (out of your control) along the way which must have been very frustrating. It is a very big accomplishment. You are now internationally recognized for your expertise. Kenyan women will benefit so much from your expertise and your future training of other doctors. I wish I could be in Kenya to congratulate you in person.”
