Program Description:

Global Health

Tanzania Summer Program

GH Tanzania



The goals of the eight-week summer program in Moshi, Tanzania are to enhance the cross-cultural competence of participants and to provide students with the opportunity to gain broad knowledge about global health issues in the Tanzanian context. Participants live with a local family and, for the first four weeks of their stay, enroll in a course at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College (KCMU-Co).  In this course, students learn about current policy issues and work in teams with Tanzanian students to develop, negotiate, write, and present a new policy case study.  During the second half of the program, students contribute forty hours of service per week to a local non-governmental organization, hospital, or government agency through a service project that is tailored to the student's interests in global health.
