The one-week attachment for East African Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene was officially opened today.
The course brings together international medical doctors into one classroom to study tropical diseases. This course runs for 3 months annually, and is aimed at developing enthusiasm, knowledge and skills for further training and clinical practice in Tropical diseases, particularly in infectious diseases.
The course emphasises experiential learning by immersing students in the clinical and public health issues facing African doctors today. Small group sessions are led by experienced physicians and at least a quarter of the course material is directly related to clinical practice.
At course completion, participants are awarded the East African Diploma in Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
