【About Sudan Tropical Exchange Program】
STEP is a project for international medical students to get acquainted with the pathological and clinical features of the Tropical Diseases as well as discussing the management plans including investigations. It is held annually in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Khartoum and supervised by Professors, Doctors and Tutors specialized in each field.
The program reviews tropical diseases including Malaria, Tuberculosis, Leishmaniasis, Schistosomiasis, Typhoid fever, Tropical gastroenterology, Rheumatic fever and Mycetoma.
This is achieved through various methods such as:
– Laboratory work
– Clinical live cases
– Hospital rounds
– Surgical operations
Moreover, STEP aims to provide community aids which are accomplished through the Medical Mission.
The Medical Mission aims to raise awareness through health education in addition to providing free diagnosis, investigations and treatment in the rural areas of Sudan; all while exploring the African culture and the Sudanese heritage through a very rich social programme.
