SCMSA Summer School is the combination of a strong scientific program revolving around tropical medicine and a rich touristic program for international medical students. The program has been running successfully since 1995, making it the oldest of its kind in the Middle East. We are well aware that most universities offer their students full coverage on the same topics that we grant, but what we provide is different. What we propose is a unique experience of a vivid, realistic study that deeply enriches the students skills and visions through utilizing a practical course, where they get to perform the examinations and obtain medical histories from patients with diseases that are very unlikely to be encountered in their own countries, because it is our belief that the heart of medical excellence is clinical experience. In addition to that, the whole curriculum is wrapped in a problem-based learning system to induce the students curiosity towards the subjects. However, because we understand that life requires some degree of pleasure, and because you just cant visit Egypt and not enjoy yourself, we also offer a professionally designed social program which includes tour visits to the most important attraction sites, both historical and natural, as well as some simple modern fun. The program is highly flexible; allowing more trips upon request.
