2018 sees our busiest program of medical electives with seven from Oxford University spending time with SMMMS during March-May. This year builds on a successful last few years with our Doctors for the Simien Mountains program offering both SMMMS, as well as Debark hospital and some of the remote government clinics, the chance to work with highly trained professionals from one of the world’s most prestigious medical schools.
We have also been voted Keble College Charity of the Term as well, many thanks to Alexander, Elizabeth and George for proposing us. We will be posting updates in due course from everyone’s time in the mountains once they’ve returned.
‘We had an absolutely fantastic time working at Keyit Clinic! Keyit is a spectacular village, and all the SMMMS staff were, without exception, so welcoming and kind to us both.
We found the medicine we experienced very interesting and engaging, and Addis and Getu did a very good job of translating to enable us to participate in consultations fully.’ – Isabella de Vere Hunt, Oxford University
