Education & Research
LION is set to be a teaching hospital and a surgery training site under COSECSA.
By training orthopaedic and trauma surgeons, neurosurgeons, anaesthesiologists, radiologists, specialized nurses and rehabilitation staff, LION will contribute to the improvement and growth of medical services in Lilongwe, Central Region and Malawi.
As LION staffing saturates and services are scaled up, LION will contribute substantially to the training of specialist personnel also for the district hospitals and rural areas.
We have our own research department with highly dedicated personnel. Research is the cornerstone of quality improvement. Through research we can map what is leading to the injuries and the disease burden we treat informing preventive measures. Continually monitoring our results ensures we are always focused on improving the outcomes for our patients.
