MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Four Ukrainian physicians are in Memphis this week, touring area hospitals to learn how doctors here treat trauma and patients in extreme situations.

Tuesday, the four visiting doctors headed to the Memphis VA Medical Center to tour its surgical and mental health units. The goal of the visit was to allow them to see how VA doctors treat burns and handle patients needing intensive care and trauma treatment.

Monday, the physicians headed to Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare as part of the international exchange program with the U.S. Department of State and the Open World Leadership Center. There, they learned about treatments for patients at both Methodist University Hospital and Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.

Wednesday, the doctors plan to head to Regional One Hospital to visit its trauma and burn care unit.

With the help of the Friendship Force Memphis, the Memphis physicians are helping the Ukrainian doctors with determining the best ways to treat patients in war zones, as the Ukrainian and Russian conflict continues.
