[May 21, 2019] - Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) is pleased to announce the launch of a new internal medicine project in partnership with Kabale University School of Medicine (KABSOM) in Kabale, Uganda.
Working with the academic staff of KABSOM, HVO volunteers will support the training of medical students and internal medicine interns on bedside rounds, clinics, didactic lectures, journal clubs, and skills tutorials. Volunteers will also work with internal medicine personnel to improve skills and knowledge, focusing on the following subspecialty areas: cardiology, non-communicable diseases and other areas that KABSOM identifies.
Assignments are one to four weeks. Volunteers must be board-eligible internists or internal medicine subspecialists; final-year residents will be considered if accompanied by a qualified attending.

HVO’s internal medicine projects are supported by the American College of Physicians .
