Kabale University School of Medicine (KABSOM)

View Profile

Kabale University School of Medicine was started to fill the big training gap for health professionals in the Kigezi sub-region and surrounding areas where attracting and retaining highly qualified human resource in healthcare provision was not easy due to prevailing socioeconomic realities of working in a rural-based environment.

Knowing that locally trained medical graduates are more likely to practice in rural settings, Kabale University School of Medicine was therefore established to contribute to the production of the direly needed health professionals who can improve the health of the people and communities in the Kigezi sub-region, the Great Lakes region (as a whole) and beyond.

Vision:
A center of excellence in training, research and community healthcare provision in the Great Lakes region and beyond

Mission:
To improve the health of the population and communities in the Great Lakes region

Goal:
To produce graduates with appropriate competences to meet the health needs of individuals, families and the community in the Great Lakes region and beyond.
