We would like to introduce to you Dr. Aminah; a graduate of Makerere Medical School in Kampala, Uganda. Aminah is now doing her residency in family medicine at Mulago Hospital and is one of the newest additions to ASSET Uganda’s scholarship and mentoring program.
Unlike the residency programs in other countries, the residents in Uganda have to pay tuition during their residency training. This makes it hard for young doctors to cope with this especially challenging part of their training. It is especially hard for female doctors who usually have fewer opportunities for scholarships and who in many cases have children of their own to take care of.
That is why we are very proud to have this opportunity to support Dr. Aminah and we are confident that people like her can only make Ugandan communities healthier and, as a result, more economically successful. Aminah is an ASSET.
