DOCTOR’S REPORT: 2020/2021 IMMERSION PROGRAM(Required Only From Those Applying from Outside of Africa)

Dear Doctor,

The undersigned _________________________________________________ has applied for the 2020/2021 programme(s) of the TAngaza Maryknoll Centre for African Studies. This is an eleven week Immersion program of study and research with some traveling. For most of the time the participants live and study in Nairobi, Kenya which is situated on a plateau 5,200 feet above sea level. While extraordinary physical rigors are not demanded, living conditions demand good physical health. The weather for most of the programme is mild 45 – 80 Fahrenheit degrees, combining intense tropical sunshine with rain, dampness and overcast skies. Furthermore, Kenya is in a malarial area and there is some slight risk of becoming infected on travel outside of the city of Nairobi, if one does not take proper precautions.

Besides the normal wear and tear of life in a culture quite different from that of the United States or other Western countries, the program is not that demanding. However immature persons, or persons in poor physical condition or with coronary or respiratory problems, severe allergies, or ambulatory limitations would find the program taxing or even dangerous. Also, it is difficult for the programme to provide special diets. Upon examination of the applicant, would you please express your judgment as to their physical and mental capability for such a program. This statement is for the information of the programme and will not in any way hold the physician legally liable for the applicant’s acceptance into the programm or for any injury or illness that might occur during the programme.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Please return no later than May 1, 2021 for First Immersion, June 1, 2021 Second immersion and July 1, 2021 for Third Immersion Programs, August 15, 2021 for Sept – Dec 2021 Semester Programme, :
