View Profile

The Department of Paediatrics and Child Health is a core department under the Kabale University School of Medicine and Kabale Regional Referral Hospital. The Department aspires to be a center of excellence in community health, training and research in the Great Lakes region and beyond through training of highly competent healthcare providers capable of providing quality and locally appropriate Pediatrics and Child Health services to patients and conducting relevant health research for the benefit of the community.

Clinical services are mainly offered in the children’s ward of Kabale Regional Referral Hospital. The department is looking to, in the short term work with Kabale Regional Referral Hospital in developing special out-patient clinics and in the long term develop sub-specialty services in paediatric cardiology, oncology, nephrology and neurology, as well as expand existing neonatal services to include neonatal intensive care.

We also seek to work with sister Universities and Teaching hospitals in the region to create opportunities for electives for our students and research collaborations for our members of staff.

The department is currently running one program, the Master of Medicine in Pediatrics and Child Health.
