SUGAR PACK (SUGAR's Prep-departure Activities Curricular Kit; S-PACK) is a comprehensive, modular, modifiable pre-departure curriculum for medical providers planning to work in resource-limited settings. The content can be used to create a full day course or facilitators can choose use individual modules or divide the course up over multiple sessions. Each modular element includes a facilitator guide and all of the cases, worksheets, PowerPoint slides, videos, or handouts needed. Content is provided in a format that can be readily adapted/modified to be specific to one’s institution, partnership, or learner level.
