Medical students from The Gambia who have spent study time in Swansea as part of a new link-up will be sharing their experiences of healthcare in the city at a special event this Thursday (20th November).
The first cohort of medical students to benefit through the project, the eight medical students from the School of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences in Banjul, The Gambia, are in the final few days of a six-week study trip.
During their time in South Wales, they have experienced how care is delivered in different medical specialties at Singleton and Morriston hospitals, as well receiving training in the latest medical advances and IT technologies at Swansea Univeristy.
But, they’re not the only ones to benefit. Their experience of medicine and ill health in West Africa has helped teach international health to Swansea’s second year medical students.
