Welcome to the official event page of the International Medical Summer School program of Cairo University- Faculty of Medicine.
This year will be the 49th year for the university to host the program. This program has been started to help undergraduate medical students from all-over the world gain hands-on practical experience and clinical training from one of the world's oldest Medical Schools in history- Kasr Al-Aini School of Medicine. The Cairo University hospitals affiliated to The Kasr-Al-Ainy School of Medicine comprise more than 5200 beds representing the largest medical institution in the Middle East and probably one of the largest centres in the world.

The program accepts around 35 applicants in each wave of 2 weeks to attend clinical rotation in one of our Hospital's departments, under supervision of professors, assistant professors, and residents. The clinical training is supplemented by lectures in the given field, case discussions, and First Aid sessions.

Following the clinical program each day is a guided social program within the lively capital of Egypt, and optional weekend excursions such as a cruise to the cities of ancient civilizations; Luxor and Aswan, and a trip to the golden beaches of the red sea of Dahab.
