Personal Statement

I am an anesthesiologist and critical care intensivist working at Mulago Hospital and I serve as a Senior Lecturer in Anesthesia at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. My aim is to be a superior medical practitioner with broad interests in anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, and traumatology. While formally trained in anesthesia, I am also passionate about the development of emergency medicine in Uganda. Currently, Uganda has been developing emergency medical services at all levels. Within academics, I serve as the Course Director for the new Masters in Medicine in Emergency Medicine program of Makerere University which is one of two Emergency Medicine training programs in the country and is now in its third year. Previous to this there were no training programs in emergency medicine in Uganda. I also serve as one of the founding board members of Emergency Medicine Uganda (now: Emergency Care Society of Uganda), a professional organization aimed at promoting emergency medicine across Uganda. From a research perspective, my aim is to build a base of emergency medical care research for the country.

And from a professional level, I will continue to build on my experiences and knowledge through continuous medical education, specialist interaction and research participation, to improve the quality of acute and critical care in Uganda.

Contribution to Science

Over the last several years I have been involved in the development of emergency medical services, including both prehospital and in-hospital care in the country. Prior to 2018, both EMS and advanced training in emergency medicine were limited. Currently, I serve as the Course Instructor for the Master’s Program in Emergency Medicine, Makerere University and have worked alongside others to promote the specialty of emergency medicine through research.


As an anesthesiologist and critical care intensivist by training, I am also interested in the relationship between emergency medicine and critical care.


Lastly, I have also focused on the use of ketamine and other anesthestics in the treatment of acute pain and in the pre, peri- and post-operative periods.
