Undergraduate Emergency Medicine Program

The Emergency Medicine Department offers the only dedicated undergraduate (MD) emergency medicine rotation in Tanzania. This is a 5-week hands-on clinical rotation in a full-capacity Emergency medicine Department. The undergraduate rotation takes place during semester 7/8 of the MD program and students participate in all clinical activities of the department, with a focus on early identification, stabilization, treatment and appropriate disposition of acutely ill patients; skills essential for all physicians.

 The program is a part of the MD competency-based curriculum that is approved by Tanzania Commission of University (TCU) under the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences.
