Vacancy- are you the doctor for us at Fantsuam?

John appeals for a doctor to undertake training following Dr Awojobi's visit to Fantsuam:

Fantsuam Foundation ( is committed to empowering community members, particularly women, to find employment and income to meet the needs of themselves and their families. We work in 50 communities across 7 Local Government areas in Kaduna State, and over 5,000 individuals benefit from Fantsuam’s services every year. We estimate that over 200,000 people have benefited either directly or indirectly from Fantsuam Foundation’s activities since it was established in BayanLoco in 2001.

Fantsuam Rural Health Centre

The Fantsuam Rural Health Centre, set up in 2007, is a not-for-profit primary healthcare facility providing services to address the needs of its host communities. It is located in BayanLoco, a peri-urban area of Kafanchan, Kaduna State and seeks to emulate the principles of Nigeria’s premier Ibarapa Community Health Programme through the provision of a professional and affordable primary healthcare service.

A unique opportunity

If you are a medical doctor, registered with the Medical and Dental Council (MDC), and are seeking career fulfillment through service in poorly resourced rural communities - here is a unique opportunity for you. An intensive all-expenses-paid three months training, in all aspects of rural and emergency surgery is being offered under the mentorship of Nigeria’s foremost rural surgeon, Dr. Oluyombo Awojobi, CEO of the world renowned Awojobi Clinic Eruwa (ACE).

The post comes with the benefit of free accommodation, free rural internet access 24/7 and of course Dr. Awojobi’s mentoring.
