Tropical medicine experts from Africa and Germany supervise individual on-site bedside teaching, laboratory sessions (hands-on microscopy of parasites in the blood, stool, urine and skin) and give lectures (in English) on up-to date issues in tropical medicine and travelers health in various hospitals and research institutions.

The curriculum covers the epidemiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, prevention and control of the most important tropical infectious diseases. In addition the participants get an insight into the local healthcare systems and explore during medical field excursions the fantastic scenery and prolific flora and fauna of Africa. Each excursion is accredited with 60 CME hours by the Medical Association in Düsseldorf, Germany.
