About the Programme

East African Development Bank Medical Training and Fellowship Programme targets four EADB member states – Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. The Programme aims to increase the number, quality and deployment of medical professionals in public service specialising in the treatment of cancer and neurological disorders in the East Africa region.

It intends to train 600 East African physicians over a period of four years and will focus on early detection, research and treatment of cancer and neurological disorders in areas where access to qualified professionals remains a challenge. Please note there is no charge for the trainings. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered under the programme.

The METAF Programme includes; 

  • Short clinical courses across Kenya, Tanzania Uganda and Rwanda designed and delivered by expert faculty across the East African region and international faculty recruited through the RCP.

Through the delivery of clinical training courses, participants will be equipped to better diagnose and manage their patients with common neurological disorders or undertake acute triage of cancer presentation and to manage urgent symptoms of cancer within district/regional hospitals.

Clinical Training – Neurology
This aim of the Clinical Training – Neurology course is to increase patient access to physicians trained in the early detection and management neurological conditions, and to highlight the opportunities for implementing both primary and secondary prevention within their day-to-day clinical practice.

Clinical Training of Trainers – Oncology
The Clinical Training of Trainers – Oncology course will increase patient access to physicians trained in the acute triage and management cancer presentation, and to highlight the opportunities for implementing both primary and secondary prevention within their day-to-day clinical practice. A first series of two Training of Trainers (ToT) courses will equip a group of trainers with the deep understanding of the course material as well as the skill to cascade the material in subsequent courses. 

Both regional clinical training courses will be delivered by expert faculty across the East African region and international faculty recruited through the RCP. Read More »
