Emergency Medicine (EM) is a three-year clinical Masters in Medicine degree at the College of Health Sciences at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda with clinical teachings mainly at the Emergency Department of Mulago National Referral Hospital. The program strives to impart a broad clinical working knowledge of emergency medicine including pre-hospital services and disaster management, with concurrent clinical understanding of disease pathophysiology, while also instilling a professional attitude and behavior towards others and providing a foundation in medical research. The program will train eight students in its first year, and these graduates will become the first EM physicians to staff regional referral hospitals across Uganda.
Rosh Review will be the first exam question bank the program will routinely use for practice. We are honored to be a part of a program that will directly improve the health of the people of Uganda through innovative teaching and research and will provide services that respond to societal needs.
