Employment type: Fixed Term-6 months

Organizational Profile

The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is on a mission to radically change the way health care is delivered around the world. UGHE is a new university based in Rwanda that is building the next generation of global health professionals—doctors, nurses, researchers, and public health and policy experts—into leaders and change makers who strive to deliver more equitable, quality health services for all.

Background

The model of education at UGHE focuses on exposing students to real world challenges by going outside of the classroom to the community. Here, students get to learn from community health workers, health facility staff as well as community members through household visits and other community activities.

Throughout their time in the community, students are encouraged to observe their surroundings, identify social determinants of health, and engage with community members at different levels to learn from their lived experiences. During their clinical training, UGHE medical students spend their time with hospital personnel and patients, with whom they work daily. An important aspect of fostering community partnerships is language and communication with community members such as patients.

Role Overview

The primary role of the Kinyarwanda teacher will be to develop a Kinyarwanda teaching curriculum as well as teaching material for international students who are pursuing their medical education at UGHE, from beginner to proficient.

The curriculum will be developed and adapted to the needs of the students, which include basic speaking and listening skills, as well as healthcare terminology and language for community health engagement and patient interaction at the hospital.

The secondary role will be to teach Kinyarwanda classes and provide training to student-tutors who will be in charge of accompanying international students throughout their learning outside the classroom

  • Develop an adapted Kinyarwanda teaching curriculum for medical international students.
