Since 2013 the State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) also has a medical department. This School of Medicine and Health Sciences called for help to establish and support dermatological education for medical students in Zanzibar. There are strong liaisons with the Mnazi Mmoja Hospital in Stone Town.
Currently there are 40 to 50 student enrolled in the medical faculty who will start their internships shortly. At this time however there are no dermatologists available to teach the medical students. Furthermore there is a great need for dermatological education for both the curriculum and the internships.
