Training and COSECSA

Hello NSU Family,

i hope you’re blessed and being the best versions of yourselves. We as The Neurosurgical Society of Uganda are actively trying to do the same as we prioritize capacity building, training and research in neurosurgery in Uganda. 

This report will be brief as there is not a lot to update you on this time round:

1. Our enrollment for our first class of residents in our Master of Medicine in Neurosurgery at Makerere University started last month. We enrolled 5 students! This feat would not have been possible without you all. 

2. This year, we host the annual meeting for the College of Surgeons for East, Central and Southern African (COSECSA) in December and this is a big deal as we get to showcase our progress over the past few years. The COSECSA program and international collaboration is growing stronger and this has several positive implications for us; not the least of which including - better training opportunities for our neurosurgeons. 

Thank you so much for all your love and support. We are able to thrive today because you gave us a jolt of support. Please do continue supporting us and sharing our mission and story with your networks. 

Together we will improve the state of neurosurgery in Uganda. 

 God bless you always!
