An internal medicine programme is central to strong hospitals and high quality standards for patient care. The King’s Sierra Leone Partnership’s (KSLP) internal medicine team have been mentoring Sierra Leonean Consultants, Registrars and House Officers through daily hospital ward rounds and regular clinical case management meetings.

KSLP internal medicine volunteers also support the College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences (COMAHS) with coordinated delivery of clinical lectures for 4th and 6th year medical students, including practical bedside teaching. Working alongside hospital staff, the KSLP team is also involved in the process of writing new clinical guidelines across a range of areas including antibiotics stewardship and HIV.

This work is led from Sierra Leone by Dr Marta Lado (marta.lado@kcl.ac.uk).
