It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to this new academic year 2015/2016, a lot is happening and lots are bound to happen. As an association, we have earned great respect from our colleagues in different universities because of the enthusiasm and rate of growth we are at, the activities we carry out and the representation at both national and international level. This spirit must grow if we are to continue raising our heads up.
One of the major organisations that we subscribe to and have official position in leadership is FUMSA which has contributed actively to the continued growth of youth leaders in health in our association. I therefore invite you to take a look and read through the upcoming event. You can as well visit the Website www.fumsa.net for more.
Federation of Uganda Medical Students Association (FUMSA) is a body that brings together all medical students in the different universities in Uganda under their subscribing medical associations and currently unites about 3000 students from the 5 different medical schools, GUMSA, MUMSA, MBUMSA, BUMESA, and AMSKIU.
Every year, FUMSA holds 2 general assemblies in April and October, the April GA was hosted by Gulu University and was successful with a total of 80 participants.
This year, the October GA will be hosted by Makerere University Medical Students Association (MUMSA) from October 9th to 11th 2015, it is during this General assembly that we also elect our new team of officials.
The GA is under the theme, “DECREASING THE INCIDENCE AND PREVALENCE OF CARDIOVASCULAR RELATED DISEASES BY EARLY SCREENING AND AWARENESS ABOUT RISK FACTORS” there are great key note speakers awaiting to deliver first-hand information about the theme, this will not only be helpful to the students but communities as well.
Registration starts on 26th August and closes on the 15th of September, and thereafter you will receive an invitation letter upon successful registration.
Details for accommodation and the payment fee are to be provided later upon registration
Looking forward to seeing you at the October GA.
