The University of Liberia’s radio station, Lux FM 106.5, hosted some members of the Camp xSEL team early Monday morning as the project conducts a 4-week preparatory training of prospective students of the medical school.

Lux Morning Journal was anchored by Mr. Alphonso George and his team. Camp xSEL guests were Comfort Enders, Rogerline Temmeh and  Emmanuel Villis.

Here is an audio of the show that was held from 9:15 to 10:00 AM on Monday, October 18, 2021. Please listen (if you can) and get more information about the background, goals, nature and rationale of the project.

Camp xSEL was conceptualized to allow for secondary school students’ smooth and cohesive transition into medical education. It arose from the great need to cultivate critical thinking skills, comprehensive and synthetic material understanding, and fundamental scientific skills to prospective medical school students and students interested in the health sciences. It aims to provide empirical context and a fun and interactive learning experience for its participants. In 2021, the Camp xSEL model is being piloted with incoming premedical and pre-clinical students. 

Camp xSEL is part of the USAID-funded BRIDGE-U: Applying Research for a Healthy Liberia project, and was planned with support from the PEPFAR-funded Resilient and Responsive Health Systems Liberia project.
