Obstetrics & Gynecology


Current Projects

Durfee:  Guyana

  • The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation is the major public hospital, referral center and medical training center for Guyana, an English-speaking, South American country with a population of about 750,000.  The obstetrical and gynecologic services are overburdened and understaffed.  The services see a broad range of serious pathology, including tropical diseases in pregnancy.  Through Case Western University's OB/GYN and global health programs, the first OB/GYN residency program in Guyana has been created as of 2012 at GPHC for local physicians.  Faculty from Case Western and Vanderbilt go for short-term visits (typically one week) for teaching and patient care; some stay for longer visits.  Housing and transportation within Guyana are supplied by the hospital.  Dr. Durfee is involved with developing an oncology program with visiting specialists, as well as with the residency program itself.  Faculty from other institutions are welcome to apply to get involved.  It is anticipated that residents and medical students from other institutions will be able to participate soon.

Eckardt:  Uganda and Kenya

  • This project focuses on research and implementation of Uterine Balloon Tamponade for Post Partum Hemorrhage in resource poor settings using condom balloons. Uterine balloon tamponade is being introduced in several health care centers accompanied by implementation research and review of efficacy and complications.  The PI for this project is also from the Division of Global Health and Human Rights in the Emergency Department at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Eckardt:  Georgia (country)

  • There is ongoing training of university professors in Georgia in case-based teaching methods, adult learning methods and assessment methods as well as teams training for quality assurance.  Dr. Eckardt is a consultant for Harvard School of Public Health and JSI on this project.
