WE ARE NOW RECRUITING FOR SPRING 2023!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team was unable to visit Uganda from 2019-2021. With vaccines becoming more widespread, and travel becoming possible, we were able to return to Uganda for our first post-Covid trip in May 2022 and have begun to build momentum. For the first time, we will be sending two teams to Uganda in the 2022 year.
The April 2023 trip will involve a slightly different agenda than in past years as we have added new partners in the last 12 months. Interested? Contact us to learn more.
One of CUSEMs main pillars is education. We want to motivate, encourage and inspire sport and exercise medicine excellence in an independent manner. We believe this is achievable through a strong educational program. We run 3 formal educational days covering a variety of topics and build on the foundation year after year.
ASSESS & TREAT
These can be long days. We set out from our hotel (which is comfortable, beautiful and safe) around 7am and return for about 7pm. We work outside under tents. Athletes from all over the country travel to see CUSEM physicians, physiotherapists and pedorthists. Each therapist has a local Ugandan healthcare professional shadowing and learning. In 2019 over 3 days we saw 188 athletes.
Exploring country is a must when visiting Uganda. We plan a mid-trip Safari at Murchison Falls. Other delagates have gone to Chimp Island, done a Kampala Walking Tour, explored restaurants and braved the shopping markets.
Many past team members remain close colleagues and friends. This trip does create close bonds.
MAKE AN IMPACT.
