EXCEMED’s 2014 CME Tour of Africa, run in partnership with Dr Jonathan Levy of the Oxford Centre for Diabetes UK, held CME events in Angola, Ghana Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Uganda.

It was aimed at mainly undergraduate medical and pharmacy students, diabetologists, endocrinologists and all healthcare professionals dealing with Diabetes Mellitus.

Background to the 2014 tour

EXCEMED launched its first CME Tour of Africa in 2013 to enhance local awareness and capability in diabetes and chronic disease management. Diabetes and related conditions are a growing problem on the African continent, alongside changes in diet and lifestyle.

The tour is being repeated in 2014. It is engaging three African universities and many local scientific societies, reaching over 400 general practitioners, medical students and pharmacists. The workshops are tailored to local needs and present evidence-based data and novel diabetes management approaches through interactive clinical case studies. 

If the purpose of medical research, education and practice are to enhance the quality of life for people across the planet, EXCEMED’s CME Tour of Africa is not only timely, but essential. This initiative is far-reaching, powerful and cost-effective - is there a better way to make a difference?

EXCEMED’s 2014 CME Tour of Africa is run in partnership with diabetes expert Dr. Jonathan Levy from the Oxford Centre of Diabetes, Churchill Hospital, Oxford, UK and will touch down in Angola, Ghana Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania and Uganda.

For the 2013 tour, participant feedback was outstanding: 97% of attendees believed the training would benefit patient care and 96% were ‘satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with the education offered.The education offered to physicians during the CME Tour of Africa aligns with the standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
