The Brown Kenya Program is a bilateral medical exchange program between the Alpert School of Medicine (Providence, RI, USA) and Moi University School of Medicine (Eldoret, Kenya). This program is a part of a large multi school consortium called AMPATH (Academic Model Providing Access to Healthcare). Brown Medical School has been part of the consortium since 1998. The exchange includes opportunities for medical students, residents and faculty to live and work at the opposite site.
Founded in 1989, AMPATH is an academic medical partnership between North American academic health centers led by the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Moi University School of Medicine, centered in Eldoret, Kenya, and both the US and Kenyan governments. The program seeks to provide comprehensive services to a population of 3.5 million people in western Kenya through its three-way mission of care, research, and training. Brown University joined the AMPATH consortium in 1998. Please click here to read more about the AMPATH program at Brown.
