Canon Dr. John Senyonyi among other dignitaries. The function starts at 9:30 am with the arrival of guests.

A total of 62 students make up the pioneer UCUSoM classes. They include 35 female and 27 male students. They joined UCU on August 20th 2018 and started classes a week later on August 28th, 2018 following successful orientation sessions. Their admission follows the accreditation of UCU to teach Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBchB) and Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) in February 2018. Most of the students - 53 students are doing MBchB while 9 students are doing BDS.

The launch will also double as a fundraising for UCUSoM. Establishing a school of Medicine is an expensive venture. To support UCUSoM send mobile money on 0772 770852 (Uganda Christian University) or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
