Hello all,

I am a medical student going Kampala to do my medical elective at Mulago Hospital for July and August. I would really appreciate some tips on accommodation.

My priority is getting a good apartment for the second half of July and all of August, because my girlfriend will have arrived by then. Ideally I would like something quite close to the Mulago Hospital. The kind of apartment I'm looking for is something clean and safe with a self-contained bathroom and kitchen. In terms of budget, I've seen things for around $20-30 a day - I couldn't pay much more than that but I would definitely listen to any possibilities. Obviously a really cool apartment would be ideal!

I've not been able to find much out so far so any help would be really appreciated.

Hi Simon,

My names Anand I'm a medic from Leeds. I'm coming to Mulago from the 8th July til the 8th September for my elective too, along with Sam another fourth year from Leeds. Exams have just finished so I'm now turning my attention to elective... Have you managed to sort some accommodation? Do you know anyone else going out there? do you have an idea of anything you want to do while out there outside of Hospital hours?

Best wishes,

Dear Aanand

I'm a final year medical student at the University of Cape Town. I'm desperate to do a two week elective at Mulago hospital next year. I've had trouble contacting the hospital - all the email addresses and phone numbers I've found online have been unsuccessful!

I would so appreciate a few tips on who the correct person / party at the hospital to contact is! It looks like you're finishing your elective in the next week or so, how was it?

Warm regards
