The Immunology and Clinical Microbiology Programme from Makerere University aims at opening graduate training in this discipline to outstanding non-medical applicants.


The programme's role

Furthermore, to improve patient care, the world Health Organization is emphasizing development of Point-of-Care (POC) tests that would rapidly diagnose diseases at the initial contact at a health care facility, thus limiting transmission, which would be studied in the Immunology and Clinical Microbiology programme at Makerere University.

Programme Structure

Areas of study:

  • So far, most of the POC tests for infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and syphilis have an immunological basis, and their interpretation requires a sound understanding of Immunology/microbiology.
  • This can be achieved through advanced training in immunology and clinical microbiology, which the proposed program aims to do. For resource limited countries, the need for graduate training in immunology cannot be overemphasized.
