MSc Tropical Medicine & International HealthContact Norbert Lemonge
I graduated from the university of Yaoundé in Cameroon in 2017 with a Doctor of Medicine degree. I then worked with the Ministry of Public health In Cameroon as a GP in a remote district. Rising conflicts in the area led me to work with the International Medical corps as a humanitarian medical doctor. I then later served with Africa Humanitarian Action and then Doctors without Borders, providing health and nutritional care to refugees and internally displaced persons.
Research interests or career goals
My experience in the field made me develop a passion for humanitarian health care in the tropics, so my career goals and research interests are geared towards providing adequate and timely care to populations in distress in areas hit by conflicts and war. I intend to lead interventional research and projects with innovative ideas that should improve tropical medical care.
