Karolinska Students

It was a great moment hosting medical students from Karolinska Institutet, Sweden on their annual study visit through our partnership with Uganda Christian University (UCU) Mukono.Thank you our great friends of UCU for the partnership. Together, we create impact!.                                                                                          

In a space of one year, we have hosted students from Karolinska institutet, twice. This confirms how beneficial they find their collaboration with Mildmay Institute of Health Sciences  through our partners of UCU.

During these visits, students seek to achieve a deeper knowledge and understanding of Health systems in a global health perspective in developing countries.

In Uganda, Mildmay Uganda is the Center of Excellence in HIV care, management and a leader in healthcare professional development through its health services training arm; the Mildmay Institute Of Health Sciences.

As such, we provide an optimum destination for global education institutions for experiential learning and exchange programs for their learners, - the very reason these medical students of Karolinska Institutet chose to have their field study at Mildmay Uganda.

The Students were toured around the hospital facilities which included our Adolescent and Adult clinics, our Private medical Services wing and other facilities.

They were later oriented on the evolution and growth of the Mildmay Institute of Health Sciences from a humble in-service health workers' training centre to a fully fledged training institution of higher learning, now fully accredited by the national Council for Higher Education in Uganda and duly licenced by regulatory bodies like Uganda Allied Health Professional Council and the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Council.

Mildmay Institute now offers a wide array of health related programs at Certificate, Diploma and Bachelors level.

These students were so excited on seeing all these great strides taking place at Mildmay Uganda and as such, some promised to send more students.

Our hope is that one day they will return as independent collaborators in research and other areas as they stated to us on their way back.

Much appreciation goes to Mr. Mugumya Ivan, Mr. Atuhura Tadeo, Dr. Tom Baale, Mrs. Teddy and Ms. Sarah Nabulya for supporting through this entire activity. 

The MUG hospital and MUG at large who  have been and continue to be supportive in strengthening these collaborations.
