The graduates produced by this programme have a huge impact on the delivery of health care services to rural communities, mainly because they come from the area, and hence know the language and culture of the people - and thus they are better equipped to understand the problem and offer appropriate treatment. All graduates are involved in the promotion of the programme in various ways - some do motivational talks to the youth in the area, others provide mentoring support to existing students at University, other co-ordinate various activities such as Hospital Open Days and Holiday Work for the existing students.


We have 185 graduates, who each have a unique story of what they have overcome in order to become a healthcare professional and thus help their family and community. Some of these stories are listed here.
