Faculty Interviews

An overview of faculty experience in global surgery:

VCU Crone-Scholars Program

A brief introduction:

Charles and Ginny Crone created the VCU-Crone Scholars Program in 2016 to help foster the collaboration between VCU and the Ministry of Health of Rwanda. Through their generous support, several leaders of the trauma and EMS system in Rwanda have visited and worked with colleagues at VCU. See stories below.

As of March 2019, Mr and Mrs Crone have generously agreed to support global surgical education for VCU surgery residents and have set up three scholarships a year for the next five years for them to learn through VCU's many global collaborations as Global Surgery Scholars. More details available soon.
