Professor Ingles with Professor Paul Nyongesa, Chair, Post-Graduate Education, Moi University School of Medicine.
Since the publication of The Flexner Report, Medical education in the United States and Canada, in 1910, the importance of medical students having a good foundation in the sciences has been acknowledged. AMPATH-UofT supports this through its support of undergraduate and post-graduate education at Moi University School of Medicine.
For example, Professor (Emeritus) Jim Ingles, Department of Biochemistry, has been conducting annual visits to Eldoret to deliver a variety of lectures to an array of trainees. This includes:
- Introduction to genetics and mutations
- Mechanisms of inheritance
- Genetic technologies
- Cancer genetics
- Genetic medicine & human genome studies
