SCOPE offers medical students worldwide an opportunity to experience medicine in another culture and health system, ultimately making them more sensitive to the differences in healthcare across the globe. It is a quality educational and cultural experience organized entirely by medical students with the help of their medical faculties.
SCOPE Uganda has well defined exchange conditions. However, we have not yet managed to sustainably execute exchanges on local and international levels. We look forward to having you have a placement in the pearl of Africa.
The aim of SCOPE is to promote national and international understanding and cooperation amongst medical students and all health professionals through national and international exchange of students. The exchange program offers students unique educational and cultural experience in addition to the regular medical curriculum. It also helps to broaden the students understanding of medical and social conditions in different medical schools and/or countries.
A professional means exchange of a medical student who undergo a medical practice in a hospital abroad or hospitals other than his/her teaching hospitals. This practice, named clerkship, is purely educational for the student and he/she will not receive a salary for it.
The types of SCOPE clerkships:
1) A Preclinical Clerkship: is defined as the stay of a student working or studying in a preclinical
department at a medical faculty/school or hospital.
2) A Clinical Clerkship: is defined as the stay of a student in a clinical department of a hospital or
clinic, or attached to a general practitioner.
Clerkships can be offered basically in all clinical and preclinical fields of medicine. The duration of a
clerkship is four weeks. Clerkships are given in English or in the language of the country. Contracts
among organizations, members of FUMSA, can be signed on bilateral or unilateral basis.
