Healthcare is a huge issue throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, and Uganda is no exception. Imagine a doctor to patient ratio of 1 to 25,000. The Majority of doctors live in the larger cities, but 80% of Uganda's population lives in rural areas where doctors and nurses are scarce. Qualified health professionals such as doctors, nurses, physician's assistants, and physical therapists are welcome to assist in the Iganga hospital in eastern Uganda.

Medical students may shadow and assist in non-medical procedures or as allowed by the staff.

Participants must be at least 18 years old or older at the time of their program.
