Undergraduate students’ contributions to health service delivery through communitybased education: A qualitative study by the MESAU Consortium in Uganda

Background: It has been realised that there is need to have medical training closer to communities where the majority
of the population lives in order to orient the trainees’ attitudes towards future practice in such communities. Although community based education (CBE) has increasingly been integrated into health professions curricula since the 1990s, the contribution students make to service delivery during CBE remains largely undocumented. In this study, we examined undergraduate health professions students’ contribution to primary health care during their CBE placements.
