Programmes & Projects

Touro University Medical Students- Continuing an annual tradition that transpired from a partnership between Touro and Shirati, 15 medical students visited the hospital for three weeks in June. The students had an opportunity to shadow doctors on their rounds, and also undertook several projects of their own. These included surveying the hospital staff to find out what opportunities for continuing medical education should be made available, hosting a clinic to test for and treat Schistosomiasis, and conducting

research on birthing practices of women in the Shirati community. Shirati looks forward to the continued partnership which provides professional advancement to both Shirati Hospital and Touro students.
