Office of medical education

St. Luke’s International Medical Program (SLIMP) is a non-profit organization developed to assist low- and middle-income countries with sustained improvements in care by providing critically needed supplies, equipment, and training by visiting medical professionals. Secondarily, this program provides training for the next generation of healthcare workers to meet the needs of the international community.

St. Luke’s International Medical Program (SLIMP)

Over the last ten years, SLIMP has visited and supported three hospitals located in Cameroon, Guatemala, and Gambia. In April 2014, there will be trips to Cameroon and a new location, India, headed by Dr. Najma Khanani. Over 30 different physicians, residents, fellows and medical students have participated in SLIMP, representing numerous departments including Family Practice, General Surgery, Orthopedics, OB/GYN, and Dermatology. SLIMP was also able to secure ACGME approval for resident rotations in family practice, OB/GYN, and General Surgery. SLIMP aims to continue to train not only surgical residents, but also a variety of multi-specialty medical professionals, to function internationally.
