Following a successful pilot ultrasound training project in Kenya in 1996, the rapid growth of this activity clearly demonstrated the need for similar projects. Courses in diagnostic radiography and ultrasound have since been implemented countrywide in Kenya, Ghana, Tanzania, Malawi and Zambia on a sustainable basis with close involvement of local expertise and resources. In most countries the courses are part of a package which also includes curriculum development, teacher training and e-learning. An efficient, effective and experienced international project management team with a strong emphasis on the different regional and national situations guarantees the successful transfer of educational and training knowledge. Excellent working relationships with partners in beneficiary countries have been established as we have proven our efficiency and reliability.
Since 2007 the capacity of the healthcare team of MeduProf-S has tremendously increased to enable us to offer a wider variety of health related courses including Nursing, Physiotherapy, Hospital Waste Management and Bio-Medical Engineering.
