Medical Center

Background

Kyambogo University Medical Center was established in 2003 following the merger of the three former Institutions of Higher Education i.e. the Uganda Polytechnics Kyambogo (UPK), Uganda National Institute of Special Education (UNISE) and the Institute of Teacher Education Kyambogo (ITEK). Before the merger, each institution operated a health unit and provided free services to a student population of 8000. Following the creation of the University, the health services were merged to form one health service delivery unit referred to as the University Medical Center currently serving a population of 33,000 students (Academic year 2016/18), 911 staff members & 2981 dependents.
