Enhance your experience while improving access to healthcare for local communities

Strong mentorship is a core foundation of all our programs, delivered by Medical Doctors and Registered Nurses with expert local knowledge. These mentors are employed full-time on the program to avoid conflicting priorities between clinical responsibility and student safety, as well as to provide continuity throughout the learning experience.

Our purpose-built Field Campus in Tanzania provides a world class base with easy access to the hospitals, community health centres and remote tribal communities at the heart of the learning experience.

Your participation in this program directly helps to improve access to healthcare for local people as the hospitals, health centres, doctors, nurses and communities that all play crucial roles in your experience are all paid directly from your program fee.

Applications are now closed for summer 2024 program sessions and open for 2025.
