As part of its social corporate responsibilities, Africmed International Hospitals in collaboration with its partners regularly provides training for medical personnel from both Gambia and abroad.

The trainings mostly cover laboratory, nursing and pharmacy work as well as general training of junior doctors. The trainees are mostly personnel and staff of various public and private institutions and medical students on attachment at the clinic. “It works like this; people apply expressing interest to take part in our training or be placed on internship at our clinic to have a chance to be part of the training. So, we accept applications as much as we can handle and of course including our own staff for the trainings,” said Dr Omar Jagne, CEO.
