Eric started his fellowship at EVI on 30 November 2015. Eric has a Medical Doctorate from the University of Ouagadougou in 2010, followed by several years of experience in vaccinology and clinical research. He has held various positions at hospitals/health centres in Burkina Faso, and most recently supervised immunisation campaigns (Polio campaigns, measles and rubella campaign) on behalf of the World Health Organization (WHO).
“The training at EVI was a good opportunity for an effective improvement of my capabilities in clinical research. I am now sharing the skills gained at EVI with the clinical team at the Centre de Recherche en Santé de Nouna (CRSN), Burkina Faso, through daily work experience and workshops. As part of my reintegration plan, I also proposed the implementation of a better quality management system at CRSN as it was one of the key goals of my training. I am still in contact with EVI which is giving me valuable assistance and I hope we will soon have the possibility to collaborate in future projects”.
