The KIIS Tanzania program includes practicums for students in health related majors such as medicine, nursing, health administration, public health and social work. The practicums provide rich hands-on experiences in hospitals, HIV clinics and orphanage homes among other settings. The program is based in the city of Dar es Salaam.
