Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM), in conjunction with the University of Ghana Medical School (UGMS), offers a global health experience for students after their first year of medical school in Ghana’s capital city of Accra. The experience will include participating in a coordinated course in Internal Medicine and Surgery. The course consists of daily lectures together with bedside teachings and tutorials on the wards. The course emphasizes the application of clinical techniques and laboratory/radiological investigations in making diagnosis in different clinical scenarios. Students will have the opportunity to shadow experienced clinicians and will have a broad exposure to both tropical and chronic non-communicable diseases.
