Get to Arusha, Tanzania
Beautifully tucked below Mt. Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, stands Arusha. A rich agricultural town surrounded by large vegetable and flower farms, Arusha enjoys a pleasant climate all year round. Take a tour of the city’s central point in Africa at Clock Tower, or enjoy the coffee farms and a day excursion to beautiful Meru waterfall.

The Arusha Medical Experience
The Elective Africa program in Arusha is a unique and wonderful opportunity for Medical Students.The hospital and Staff are great and provide instruction for students of all years .Additionally, the city of Arusha is a great area to live in and embrace the culture of Tanzania.
An Incredible Learning Experience
My four weeks at Mt.Meru Regional Hospital OBS&GYN Department have been an incredible learning experience.The doctors and staff have been welcoming and willing to teach.The department is extremely busy and there lots of opportunities for hands on including deliveries. Where Elective Africa really shines is with their program Coordinators. Our Coordinator in Arusha has been outstanding. He has gone above and beyond to make our experience here unforgettable. I would recommend EA to any Senior Medical Student looking to do an elective abroad.
Fun and Adventure in Arusha
I was also able to go on Safari and climb Kilimanjaro which Elective Africa organized...The medical experience is fantastic, you won't struggle to find activities to do, the people are very friendly and welcoming and everything runs smoothly thanks to Elective Africa. I would recommend this program to you!
An Experience; Differenciated and Holistic
I was stationed at Levolosi Health Center…The clinical experience was something else, much different than the world of medicine I was used to before this. Elective Africa offered great accommodations that topped all of the other programs around the area... The excursions were also something that Elective Africa made easy. I climbed Kilimanjaro while I was here, and I went on the 3-day Safari.
