Postgraduate Training

There has been a remarkable increase in postgraduate cardiology research since the inception of MEPI-CVD in 2010. Between 2000 and 2010 there were about 7 studies focusing on CVD by graduate students at MakCHS and none at MUST. However, within the past four years, about 26 studies have been done at MakCHS and four at Mbarara. Twenty five postgraduates (residents) have been supported through competitive awards to complete their graduate training at the two institutions.

Fourteen trainees have graduated with the rest graduating early 2015, all trainees have been retained and working in different parts of the country.
