A delegation from Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre visited Duke last month with the aim of continuing discussions with their Duke counterparts on how to best move forward in medical education curriculum development, clinical research, library resources, technology and communications and innovative teaching methodologies.

KCMC, in partnership with the Duke Global Health Institute, is working to strengthen medical education in Tanzania, where there is a major shortage of trained medical doctors and researchers. The five-year $10M project expands DGHI’s decade-long partnership.

In this video, learn more about the KCMC visit to Duke, the long-standing institutional collaboration and the recently awarded grant from PEPFAR, NIH and the US Health Resources and Services Administration.
