London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, University of London

East African Tropical Medicine and Hygiene

This programme is taught by staff and colleagues in Tanzania and Uganda, and is designed for doctors planning to work in Africa, taking the essence of the London course and translates it in to an African context; it emphasises experiential learning by immersing students in the clinical and public health issues facing African doctors today; a proportion of the fees paid by international students will be used to fund low cost scholarships for East African physicians; at least 1/3 of the places are reserved for local doctors as part of our commitment to building capacity for postgraduate medicine in the region; we think this residential course will be enriched by the academic and social mixing between overseas and African doctors; on completing the course students will have gained an insight in to the practical realities of healthcare in East Africa; students evaluate the evidence for various health interventions, both public and individual, and make a safe and competent assessment of sick patients.
