STEP stands for Sudan Tropical Exchange Program. This is a unique opportunity for you to see and learn about the diseases we rarely see in the North, experience a new country and its culture, as well as study and socialize with students from all over the world!
STEP is an international course in tropical medicine held in Sudan, mostly in the capital Khartoum. The project began in 2009 of our systerförening, MedSIN-Sudan.
The project's aims are to:
1. Provide theoretical and clinical training of tropical diseases such as malaria, leprosy and schistosomiasis
2. Highlighting its impact on communities
3. Through clinical work, help those affected.
The course includes instruction in the form of lectures, clinical practice and laboratory work. At the end you go on a "medical mission", which means to give out information, free medical examination and treatment of a ruralt society. All this to get out of STEP – of course not forgetting the social programme of excursions and the rich Sudanese culture!
As the project team in Sweden, we are two coordinators marketing STEP to spark interest for this amazing opportunity, in the hope that so many students or recent graduates from Sweden as possible seeking and possibly participating in the project. We are in contact with the coordinators in Sudan and other countries.
