The Gower Walk Challenge 2018

On the weekend of May the 5-6th 2018, members of the ENT department at ABMU health board walked the length of the Gower coast (~45miles!) in 48 hours to raise money to improve educational opportunities in The Gambia.

Thanks to many kind donations we raised a total of £550! 

Day 1 - Kittle to Rhosilli

Day 2 - Rhosilli to Crofty

We plan to do the same thing again next year & we invite everyone to come along. The entry fee for walkers is only £5 and individual sponsors are welcomed. For those who can't make it, show your support by donating at our JUSTGIVE page.

Gambian ENT teaching course 2017

September 2017 Cohort 11 - Edward Francis Small hospital, The Gambia. School of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences. 

In September 2017 we delivered the first Swansea University led Gambian ENT course. We delivered the whole course with an examination over an intense eight-day period.

The students were sent materials ahead of the trip and had access to this website content throughout the course  All 22 of the students passed their examination and practical assessments and showed great enthusiasm throughout.

Examination practice

Throughout the week each student had plenty of time to practice the newly learned examination skills under the guidance of the tutors.

Teaching methods


During the week we used a variety of teaching methods including traditional lecture-based sessions, group work and quizzes, making the most of the teaching environment to deliver an interactive course.

Special thanks to all the staff and students at The University of the Gambia and Swansea University that helped make this course a success. We hope this is the first of many such courses.
