HANDS-ON MEDICAL CARE IN UGANDA

The unique format of an itinerant medical event allows for exceptional networking opportunities for participants, with a component of physician well-being incorporated into the detailed organization of this event. Intellectually, culturally, and spiritually rich, our program brings participants in direct contact with medical practices in the country and cities where we travel, from internationally renowned academic institutions to small towns’ health care centers. We are collaborating with local physicians and medical organizations to offer experiences that will build lasting memories of human solidarity in improving medical care and a feeling of belonging to global medicine.
